Some gardeners steer clear of plants like bugleweed (Ajuga reptans) - but in my case, ‘Black Scallop’ was the perfect choice for a large space that needed a pretty cover. And although it may appear that the bugleweed is gunning for the lawn in this photo, rest assured it is actually the other way around and unfortunately presents clear photographic evidence of my faulty weeding practices. Sigh…just keeping it real! ;)
What are your favourite ground cover plants? Which are big no-no’s? Are there any that you particularly favour for difficult spots (ie: under trees, in shady locations etc.)?
