Ajuga reptans 'Catlin's Giant' (Catlin's Carpet Bugle) - A very hardy groundcover that quickly spreads to make a lustrous mat of green leaves with a bronze tinge. In the spring, blue-purple flower spikes rise above the foliage. It prefers to grow in cool sun or part shade, with regular watering. Grows to about 1' x 2-3'. Hardy to well <0 degrees F. The plant we grew for many years (since 1995) as 'Catlin's Giant' is not what is currently being grown under this name by most nurseries. We have switched to growing the commonly accepted form with smaller more bronze leaves and continue to grow the larger green leafed plant we listed for many years under this name as Ajuga reptans 'Jungle Beauty'.  The information presented on this page is based on research that we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information that would aid others in growing Ajuga reptans 'Catlin's Giant'.
