Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop'

Black Scallop Bugleweed - PP15815

Black Scallop Ajuga has glossy, deep purple/near black, crisp foliage.  Black Scallop spreads by stolons with a somewhat slower growth habit than other reptans.  Deep lilac-blue, 2"-3" tall flower spikes shoot up putting on a brilliant show in Spring.  Plants can  be mowed on high to remove spent flowers.  Ajuga thrives in humusy soil and will grow fine in average, well drained soil.  Will tolerate occasional dry soil but prefers regular watering.  Plant in areas with good air circulation in hot, humid climates to prevent crown rot. Good for large areas as ground cover, on slopes and edges of pathways as well as rock gardens and beds. Mature height 3"-4", spread 18"-24"
