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, 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.
