Ajuga .... Who ?

Yes ... yet another one of those plant type mysteries I have managed to torture myself with .. this is an amazing Ajuga .. these blue flowers simply shine in this part of the garden (another desert .. lack of care .. by busy doing almost nothing, gardener area) And through all of that it still puts on one heck of a show for me .. I think it likes me ?

Have never seen this ajuga before and it is lovely! I always associate them with the dark black/green leaves and really don't care for them but this one is really different.

Rose .. I wish I knew what this was .. I have to go tag hunting way back to maybe get an idea .. its flowers always amaze me .. I'll let you know what it is if I find out : )

Joy, this is an amazing Ajuga. I haven't had luck with them. The old stand by variety leaves my garden every time I plant it and turns up 20 feet away in the lawn somewhere. Every specialty variety I've bought has disappeared. Guess I'll just have to look at photos from your garden instead :-)

There is a variety called Chocolate Chip...isn't that a scream! I think it has smaller dark leaves.
