Ajuga reptans Black Scallop

  • Exposure:Full sun to partial shade
  • Dimensions: 30 x 45cm
  • Hardiness: Semi frost hardy

Also known as Bugleweed, this makes a superb evergreen groundcover. Plants quickly form a low carpet of rounded, glossy leaves, purple-black in colour with a crinkly or scalloped texture. Short spikes of deep blue flowers appear in mid to late spring. Vigorous habit.

Dislikes very dry shade. A fairly sun-tolerant selection, in cool-summer regions direct sun will bring out the best colour in the leaves.

A better garden starts with a better plant. Information and picture are a guide only.
