Ajuga

Ajuga /əˈɡə/,[3] also known as bugleweed,[4] ground pine,[5] carpet bugle, or just bugle, is a genus of about 40–50 species of annual and perennial herbaceous flowering plants in the mint family Lamiaceae, with most species native to Europe, Asia,[6] and Africa, but also two species in southeastern Australia. They grow to 5–50 cm tall, with opposite leaves.[7]
