Princess Leia Bugelweed has fascinating patterned leaves of green and white, creating a visually appealing carpet of evergreen foliage. True blue flowers emerge in spring and continue sporadically throughout summer and fall. It’s an excellent choice for various purposes:

  1. Ground Cover: Use it as a low-growing ground cover to smother weeds and add color.
  2. Edging Plant: It works well as an edger along pathways or garden beds.
  3. Container Plant: Consider adding it to colorful pots.
  4. Erosion Control: Ajugas can help control erosion and fill in challenging areas.
  5. Light Requirements: Plant in shade to part shade, ideally with several hours of good sun for the best color.
  6. Moisture: While it prefers adequate moisture, it becomes drought-tolerant once established.
  7. Maintenance: After flowering, cut the plant back or use a mower on the highest setting to encourage fresh, new growth.

Deer and rabbits tend to leave it alone, which is a bonus! If you’re looking to add a splash of color to shady corners, Princess Leia is an excellent choice.
