Bugleweed Growing and Maintenance Tips

Slow-spreading ground cover that prefers fairly moist soils. Dense foliage is good for choking out weeds. Prefers partial shade to full shade but can tolerate more sun when it has adequate moisture. To rejuvenate plant growth mow over on high setting after blooming. Divide every two to three years to prevent center dieback.
