Description

This low-growing ground cover has attractive small, glossy, near black leaves that create a thick dark blanket over exposed areas in the garden. Starting in mid-spring 4-6” deep blue florets emerge and create a very appealing effect when planted in mass or used to fill gaps in a garden bed. We like the cultivar ‘Black Scallop’ because it stays more dense and compact than most ajuga. While this means it spreads more slowly it also covers more densely making it a good choice for the edge or borders or within a garden bed. The dark dense foliage creates a great background all growing season for other plants. The flowers are a bonus, but beautiful foliage is really what makes this plant shine.

Ajuga reptans can be used as the spiller of container plantings and also grows in shade where grass is difficult to establish.
