Description
 
Frosted Jade Ajuga.  A rare Ajuga the likes of which you may have never seen.  We all are familiar with the utilitarian carpeting-with-abandon slug magnet ubiquitous in gardens everywhere.  This is a different critter altogether and resembles Bugleweed about as much as a Bichon Frise does a Junkyard Dawg.  Stays put in a clump with erect stems to 16" with showy leaves of white, green and cream and intense violet blue flowers.  This has been one of the most asked about plants in our shade garden and when we say what it is, the answer usually is "That's an Ajuga?  Do you have it?"    It is completely deciduous as well which is another mind boggler.  And for slugs - they do like this one too but really it is mainly the new shoots in early spring so we just keep an eye on the growth and if they are getting nibbled then we go out one or two evenings and inflict bodily harm and don't worry much about the plant afterwards.
