Ajuga makinoi is a perennial herb growing under trees;
the whole is significantly haired. In flowering time stems arise to
5-20cm in height and fall on the ground to root when flowering is
over. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, in the shape of an
oblanceolate with the tips obtuse and the margins undulated. Flowers
come at leaf axils; the corollas are blue-purple to dark purple,
approximately 1cm in size, and the lower lips are cleft in three.
Bloom time: April-June.
