    Bugleweed Plant - Lycopsus virginicus

     

    Bugleweed is a plant commonly used for ground cover. It is native to Europe and is considered invasive in parts of North America. It is an evergreen plant that has multicolored leaves. It stays relatively close to the ground and will spread out to cover an area in a planter or yard. The runners can be transplanted to other areas in the late fall or early spring. This is done by finding a mature bunch of bugleweed and digging it up. When planting it is important to not completely cover the top of the plant or it will die. The plant is desirable as ground cover because of its multi colored leaves and beautiful blossoms in the springtime. Every spring the bugleweed will sprout a vertical string of blossoms. The blossoms will stretch upward, between 6-9 inches in height, and will differ in color based on variety. The blossoms can have a rose or white color, but the most common color is a blue or purple flower. The plant is hardy and grows easily in a variety of soil conditions. It is incredibly forgiving and will thrive in acidic as well as alkaline soil. It will grow well in hardiness zones 3-10. It also has the ability to grow in direct sunlight as well as shade, and it can be used to cover patches of dirt around trees where it is difficult for grass to take root. Another common use is for erosion control because of the dense network of roots. They have a tendency to spread out and can overtake a planter because of its tentacle like runners. You may need some sort of edging control to keep it contained. The plant will attract butterflies and hummingbirds during the months it blossoms. In most regions it will stay green throughout the year and will grow quickly to maturity.
