Pink Lightning Bugleweed is a short, dense perennial that is most valued as an attractive, creeping ground cover. The showy foliage is gray green with variegated white edges. It is quite dramatic once it has covered an area. The flowers are a creamy pink colour, fragrant, and appear on short spikes in the late spring/early summer. These flowers are beneficial to local pollinator species, like bees and butterflies. Cut back spent flowers to promote plant health and appearance.

Plant 15–20 cm apart to quickly establish an area of ground cover. Avoid planting too close to other perennial beds and lawn because it can spread quickly into undesired areas. This plant is easy to grow. It can tolerate full sun and full shade but typically does best in partial shade (4-6 hours direct sun). This Pink Bugleweed is also able to grow well in a range of soil types, moisture levels, and can outcompete undesirable weeds.
