Spending time down in California with my brother and his wife I spotted the Ajuga ground cover in their garden. It was early morning, the sun was low casting a beautiful blue shadow. The light trickled down on the Ajuga's causing them to glow. The flowers bloom in the spring til early summer. Their origin is from Europe, and the flowers are about 3 to 9" tall. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to this beautiful flower.
