Annoying pests such as deer & rabbits stay away from Black Scallop Ajuga a foolproof perennial groundcover for both shade & sun.

Rugged, near-black leaves adorn this mat-forming ground cover. 3" tall mats do a superb job suppressing weeds, leaving maintenance a breeze!

Planted beneath trees, this fast growing groundcover minimizes difficult mowing situations.  Ajuga is a great substitute for turf grass, lining narrow beds, or in front of taller perennials. 

Ajuga's colorful carpet is topped with dozens of  spikes of blue flowers in late spring and early summer.

This tough- as -nails ground cover works so superbly as an underplanting to sun loving Ornamental Grasses, shade loving Hydrangeas, Hellebores, or Hostas.

Plant this easy to grow perennial in average soil with moderate moisture and good drainage. Plant Ajuga in either sun, shade or part shade.  The dark foliage takes on a glossy appearance with a  couple of hours of sun. Occasional foot traffic can be tolerated.

About Ajuga

Ajuga Black Scallop is a hardy shade ground cover with near-black foliage. It has vigor and will easily cover an 18 inch area the first season. Ground covers play a quintessential role in both the sun and shade garden. Most ground covers are referred to as Living Mulches because they are low growing, provide dense soil cover, and help keep the weeds at bay. In addition, ground covers are very useful in preventing erosion and provide solutions for banks. Perennial ground covers provide an economic benefit as well; since they do not need to be replaced every year like mulch. Ground covers help unify the landscape, and in many cases have very colorful, flowers and season long foliage interest.
