Ajuga pyramidalis   Pyramidal Bugle

Ajuga pyramidalis Pyrenees whole Ajuga pyramidalis Pyrenees close

We had found some very similar looking Bugle plants earlier in the week but closer examination showed that they had hairs only on two sides - a characteristic of Ajuga reptans (Bugle). This one, found high in the hills, was hairy all round the stem.
