Ajuga 'Parrot Paradise' Bugleweed



Ajuga 'Parrot Paradise' is a colorful gold, green, and red groundcover with large leaves and striking blue flower spikes in spring. While the foliage can change color depending on the time of year and light exposure, it never fails to impress. Like other Ajugas, 'Parrot Paradise' stays low to the ground and spreads easily to suppress weeds.

Ajuga 'Parrot Paradise' is evergreen in most areas and adaptable to many soil types. It prefers part to full shade and average moisture. Avoid planting near a tree line or lawn where its vigorous, spreading habit could be difficult to maintain. This plant is deer and rabbit resistant.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
