Bugleweed Growing and Maintenance Tips

Slow-spreading, ground cover that grows best in a fairly moist soil. Dense foliage is good for choking out weeds. Will grow in partial to full shade and with adequate moisture will tolerate some sun. To rejuvenate plant growth, mow (on a high setting) after blooming. Divide every two to three years to prevent centre dieback.
