Ajuga ‘Sparkler’

A sparkly new variegated Ajuga. 'Sparkler' has thick, dark green, shiny foliage covered in creamy-white splashes that light up the floor of a garden like nothing else. Come winter, the variegated foliage takes on amazing pink tones. Warm weather with new growth brings out even more variegation. A good accent in containers, as a ground-cover or as an edging for the border. Small blue flowers.
