(aka: Ajuga 'New Orleans') Growing ajuga well in the hot, humid southeast US is about as unlikely as electing a 70-year-old resort developer as President. That's why Ajuga reptans 'Texas Tough' is such an amazing discovery. Our friend and keen-eyed plantsman Scott Ogden, spotted this patch of ajuga growing in the Big Easy and knew he had discovered something special. Ajuga 'Texas Tough' doesn't just survive, it thrives, solidly covering the ground, even in full southern sun with 100% humidity and almost daily rains. You'll love this insanely sturdy grower, composed of tightly woven glossy green leaf rosettes, forming a spectacular, weed-suppressing 4' wide patch in only 2 years. Stalks of purple flowers top the clump in late spring. We mistakenly introduced this as Ajuga 'New Orleans' in 2017...our faux pas.
