More Information

Description Feathered Friends™ ‘Tropical Toucan’ Bugleweed (Ajuga) is the first of its kind: a big-leaved golden bugleweed! The large leaves boast golden hues all year long, even in the winter. The wavy foliage is accompanied by cobalt-blue flowers in the summer. This vigorous ground cover quickly grows as a thick mat, 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 'Tropical Toucan'
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
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.
