Ajuga reptans Black Scallop

Bugle Black Scallop

A low growing spreading perennial perfect for carpet forming groundcover over banks and slopes, Ajuga reptans Black Scallop is an easy care, hardy evergreen that will establish almost anywhere providing there is moist soil. Dislikes dry shade. The glossy 'black' scalloped leaves are actually deeply dark purple with hues of bronze and green if planted in the shade- the more sun this plant gets, the darker the leaves. This variety is a little later to flower than others, producing short flower spikes of deep blue nettle like flowers in late Spring to early Summer which are very attractive to bees and other beneficial pollinating insects. Generally resistant to grazing deer and rabbits. Bugle Black Scallop offers exceptional contrast at the front of the border and in containers all year round.
