Ajuga reptans – Bugle

The low growing herb has periwinkle blue to violet colored flowers growing in the shape of a hooded flower with open lip petal that grows on a head. The stem is square. Leaves are opposite and can be mostly oval or lance shaped. This afternoon while facing the small rock wall I placed in front of the wild pollinator garden, I saw her pressed up against the rocks. Did she know I had been looking for her? There the little beauty beamed right in front of the garden set against a large grey stone.

Bugle, an alien, a flower brought from another country.
