UK Safari Tip:

Latin name: Ajuga reptans

Size: Grows to a height of around 30cms.

Distribution: Found throughout the UK.

Flowering months: May to August.

Habitat: Often found in damp, shady conditions, especially woodlands.

Special features: The blue flowers appear on a central stem. The glossy leaves have a purple tinge to them, and grow in opposite pairs, like other members of the mint family.

Bugle spreads by sending out creeping underground runners, and it can often be found in large patches. The flowers can be an important food source for woodland insects.
