Another Ajuga-OH NO!!  But wait,  even though there will probably never be an Ajuga that comes along that would make me say "here's a plant that you can't live without",  this adorable little plant makes me smile.  Its narrow bronzy foliage glistens in the sun showing off its 6"-10" tall,  deep blue flower spikes.

Let's face it kids,  Ajuga is not a rare,  collectors plant,  but a very useful,  utilitarian plant that can fill in a large area rapidly without becoming a nuisance,  ahhhh,  a groundcover,  duh!. 

This is an exceptionally fast growing selection that flowers on and off during the summer and grows equally well in sun or shade.  I've never heard of an Ajuga that wasn't fully hardy everywhere.
