Ajuga reptans 'Jungle Beauty' (Jungle Beauty Carpet Bugle) - Evergreen groundcover that stays under 6" tall foot tall by up to 2 to 3 feet wide. This cultivar of the common European Carpet Bugle (Ajuga reptans) is noted for its large purple tinged leaves with red margins and 10 inch tall spikes of blue-violet flowers. Plant in sun (coastal) to light shade. Moderate watering needs. Tolerates most soils so long as they are not water-logged. Hardy to < 0 F. May be the same as 'Jungle Beauty Improved'. We grew this plant for many years (since 1995) as 'Catlin's Giant', determined it is not what is currently being grown under this name by most nurseries and switched to growing the commonly accepted form of 'Catlin's Giant' that had smaller more bronze leaves. Since 2004 we have grown this larger green leafed plant as 'Jungle Beauty' but discontued growing it in 2008.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Ajuga reptans 'Jungle Beauty'.
