    Lovely! But, I am wondering how you coherced these plants to do so well together. i know lantana needs sunshine, and the bugleweed needs lots of least in Texas. Would love to see all of your garden.

    Ajuga reptans is such a fun plant, so many colors on one leaf...easy to make the 'pop' with a combo.
