Bugleweed

Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' PP015815, COPF

Glossy, scalloped, virtually black leaves make a great ground cover with deep blue flowers in spring.

Also known as Bugleweed, this makes a superb evergreen groundcover. Plants quickly form a low carpet of rounded, glossy leaves, purple-black in color 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 color in the leaves. Will perform well in tubs or mixed containers. USPP#15815: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
