Ajugas reptans 'Braunherz' is a low growing perennial suitable for ground cover under trees. In spring it bears short spikes of blue flowers. The foliage is purple-bronze and glossy. The coloured evergreen foliage makes this a useful plant for winter tubs and baskets.

Ajugas require a shady site in moist soil and are best if divided every few years.
