Description / Black Scallop Bugleweed

Simply the best ajuga for midnight-dark foliage, rich blue blooms, and great adaptability to varying soils and moisture levels, Black Scallop Bugleweed is a stunning groundcover for the garden floor or container. Its foliage is oversized, its habit very low and mat-forming, and its maintenance low.

Black Scallop Bugleweed offers large, scallop-shaped leaves of such a deep purple that they gleam black even in the sun. They cover ground quickly, forming a weed-choking mat that replaces artificial mulches and adds dramatic color to the sunny to partly shaded garden. If planted about a foot apart, Black Scallop Bugleweed fill in in no time; however, they also spread up to about 3 feet wide, so may be spaced farther apart for more gradual coverage.

The foliage—evergreen in mild and warm climates—is only one of Black Scallop's merits. From late spring into early summer, Black Scallop Bugleweed cloaks itself in rich, deep blue blooms crowded along short spikes. Very showy, the blossoms offset the dark foliage nicely.

Black Scallop Bugleweed achieves its darkest leaf color in full sun, making it a superb choice for mixed container plantings, where it will trail over the sides of a planter. And unlike older varieties of ajuga, it is quite tolerant of variances in soil fertility and moisture levels. Tougher and more garden-worthy in addition to being most attractive, Black Scallop Bugleweed is the Ajuga your garden and containers deserve.

Buggleweed or Ajuga is great!
Review by RWalker
I have not used this specific plant, but have used many varieties in my shady areas. It is great in largely shady/partly sunny locations where we use it as 'grass'. It gets mowed like grass and everything. Now mowing it keeps it from blooming, but it is a fabulous ground cover that spreads year after year to fill in all the sparse and spotty grass cover. So you don't have to limit the use of this plant to pots or gardens.
