In this study, two Ajuga taxa (Lamiaceae) were examined morphologically and anatomically. Morphological investigations were determined from fresh and herbarium materials. During anatomical study cross sections were taken from the roots, rhizomes, stems and leaves. There is a similarity in anatomical structure of two taxa. Glandular and eglandular hairs are present in only stem in A. reptans. A. chamaepitys subsp. chia var. chia have glandular and eglandular hair on both stem and leaf. In addition, the stomatal index and index rate were calculated. Stomata index is higher ratio in lower surface than in upper surface in both taxa.
