More Information

Description Feathered Friends™ 'Petite Parakeet’ Bugleweed (Ajuga) provides color all year with golden foliage! As leaves mature, they take on orange-colored central veins and leaf edges. This vigorous ground cover quickly grows as a thick mat, spreading color and suppressing weeds along the way. The Feathered Friends™ series offers winter hardy bugleweeds that provide year-round color. They're low maintenance and grow happily nearly anywhere they are planted, including beneath trees, in containers, or on banks and slopes. Partner them with other colorful foliage plants for a multi-seasonal, vibrant display! Developed by plant breeder extraordinaire (and Great Garden Plants co-founder) Chris Hansen in west Michigan. Details Botanical name: Ajuga 'Petite Parakeet'
Common name: Bugleweed, carpet bugle, bugle, ground pine, carpenter's herb
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Part sun (4-6 hours sun), shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 4" x 18"
Flower color: Cobalt blue
Foliage color: Gold and orange
Season of interest: Spring through fall
Uses: Container gardening, edging, ground cover, rock garden, stepping stones, small spaces, slopes
How To Grow Soil: Prefers moist soils with good drainage but tolerates moderately dry conditions. Favors acidic soils with a pH in the range of 3.7 to 6.5.
Light: Will grow in part sun or shade, but the best foliage color usually occurs in part sun.
Water: Easily grown in average soils.
Spacing: Space plants 6-9" apart, but be careful not to plant too deep. Soil should never cover the crown, or the plant may rot.
Fertilizing: Ajugas seldom need fertilizing. Over-fertilizing can encourage crown rot.
Winterizing: No specific care is needed.
Maintenance & pruning: Every couple of years, thin out crowded groupings to reduce the chance of crown rot. Pruning is not required but can be done to rejuvenate foliage after flowering. Larger plantings may be mowed if they become unruly.

Fabulous!

The plants were so healthy when they arrived. They are really growing fast now.

Wonderful Groundcover Plants!

I ordered about ten of these last year and planted them in my perennial bed to fill in the areas between larger plants. They are thriving! They've started to spread and the colors are vivid and pretty. I think these must have become popular because I was able to find some at my local nursery last year as well, but now they don't have any and they're sold out here! I highly recommend this plant. It's a nice alternative to the darker bugle weed plants, especially to light up shady areas.

First Time Customer

On your website I found a selection of plants that were not available to me locally. I chose this ground cover for its unique gold and bronze tones. This was my first time to order plants online and have them shipped. It was unnerving to have live plants arrive in a dark box that had been packed for several days. However, they arrived well packed in healthy condition with planting instructions. They are currently thriving in their new home!

I absolutely love any plant I have gotten from Great Garden the last two years. Quality and size are excellent. Feathered Friend came during an intense heat spell, suffered a little, but is doing great now.

two survived

It was so hot for them I’m happy that 2 of them survived. The heat did them in!
