Bugleweed Growing and Maintenance Tips

Slow to medium spreading ground cover that grows best in a fairly moist soil. Dense foliage is good for choking out weeds, however, it can be invasive. Will grow in partial to full shade, and with adequate moisture will tolerate some sun. Divide every two to three years to prevent centre dieback.
