Black Scallop Bugleweed (Ajuga reptans ‘Black Scallop’) shows off compelling dark purple-colored leaves that are almost black. Tiny spikes of deep-lavender flowers shoot up in the spring! It forms a 4-inch mat of colors so dark that your stepping stones stand out like beacons!
The leaves are upright and wavy, which brings a nice texture to your garden! Though it does fine in partial shade, the best and deepest color comes in a sunny location. In milder climates, it keeps its color all year!
Black Scallop is an extremely hardy groundcover that quickly forms a dense mat. Besides being excellent between stepping stones (it takes light foot traffic like a champ!) It also excels as an edger in a flower bed or a filler in a rock garden.
