Unlike the more typical ground covering selections of Bugleweed such as Ajuga Reptans, this species is grown more as a clumping edging plant, without the same tendency to spread by runners. Ajuga Geneva Bugleweed seeds can be started indoors or directly outdoors in fall or spring after last frost. Other common names of this plant are Upright Bugle, Blue Bugle, and Blue Bugleweed, Ajuga Genevensis produces clumps of attractive foliage with long-stalked, basal green leaves which are shallowly lobed or toothed, and the upright stems with showy violet-blue flowers that are arranged in dense, terminal, spike-like inflorescences. Large and showy Blue Bugle flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
