Black Scallop Bugleweed



Dark, Dramatic Leaves

Black Scallop Bugleweed, an ajuga, is a unique ground cover. Noted for its dark foliage and deeply scalloped leaves, Black Scallop Bugleweed can effectively sprawl over any ground. The rich purple hue of the plant is paired with the ability to suppress weeds. On top of that, the plant grows quickly, allowing it to cover the desired area in an expedient manner. In milder climates, Black Scallop Bugleweed is evergreen, and it blooms in deep colors during the spring and early summer. The colors are best in full sun, and the plant does well in a variety of soils. It is a hearty choice for the garden, surviving with varying amounts of moisture. Overall, Black Scallop Bugleweed requires little maintenance and still looks stunning, making it an excellent choice.

Beautiful and different

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

9/2015-- I just received the two small plants I ordered. They were packaged very well and arrived in excellent condition. I purchased these to fill in at the base of a Japanese maple I will grow in a large container. I hoping the roots will not go too deep. I will update later after they are bigger.
