Gorgeous, cream-purple foliage with glowing pink edges becomes covered in royal blue flower spikes in spring, often lightly repeating in late summer. This unique perennial forms a tight, cushion-like clump; does not invade as common Ajuga can. Ideal for mass planting as groundcover or border edging, or for contrast in mixed containers.
