If you decipher the botanical name of bugleweed (Ajuga reptans), you'll learn that reptans (Latin for "creeping") is a warning. This is one plant you might have difficulty controlling, as it has a tendency to be an aggressive spreader.

Bugleweed is capable of growing fast and choking out everything in its path, so consider yourself warned if you choose this plant for your landscape. Plant bugleweed in fertile, well-draining soil where air circulation is good to prevent diseases and pests. Only water it whenever the soil dries out about 1 to 2 inches down.
