More Information

Description Black Scallop Bugleweed (Ajuga) brings unique texture and colors to your garden with crinkled, near-black leaves. During cooler weather, they turn quite dark and may lighten up somewhat during the heat of summer. Spikes of bright blue flowers add an extra pop of color as they bloom in the late spring and early summer.  This ground cover grows as a thick mat, suppressing weeds and leaving garden maintenance a breeze! Thankfully, deer aren't as fond of this plant as we are, so no need to worry about excessive deer damage. This ajuga will look perfect nearly anywhere it's planted, including beneath trees, in containers, or on banks and slopes. It grows well under sun, part-sun, and shade. For the darkest leaves, make sure it gets a few hours of sun! Details Botanical name: Ajuga 'Black Scallop'
Patent #: USPP 15,815
Common name: Bugleweed, carpet bugle, bugle, ground pine, carpenter's herb
Zone: 3-9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun), part-sun (4-6 hours sun), shade (< 4 hours sun)
Soil type: Average
Soil moisture: Average
Height x width: 3" x 12"
Flower color: Blue
Foliage color: Near-black
Season of interest: Late spring
Uses: Container gardening, edging, ground cover, rock garden, small spaces, erosion control, fire-scaping, woodland garden  
How To Grow Soil: Prefers moist soils with good drainage but tolerates moderately dry conditions.  Favors acidic soils with a pH in the range of 3.7 to 6.5.
Light: Will grow in full sun or shade, but the best foliage color usually occurs in part-sun locations (at least 3-4 hours of sun per day).
Water: Easily grown in average soils.
Spacing: Space plants 6-9" apart, but be careful to not plant too deep. The crown should never be covered with soil, or the plant may rot.
Fertilizing: Ajugas seldom need fertilizing. Over-fertilizing can encourage crown rot.
Winterizing: No specific care is needed.
Maintenance & pruning: Every couple of years, thin out crowded groupings to reduce the chance of crown rot. Pruning is not required but can be done to rejuvenate foliage after flowering. Larger plantings may be mowed if they become unruly. Plants can be propagated by dividing established clumps in the fall or early spring.
