Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' (Large Plant)

Ajuga reptans 'Binblasca', Bugle

Hardy Perennial

Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' is a highly attractive variety of Bugle. The violet blue flower-spikes appear from late spring against a dense matt of glossy, liquorice-black foliage. This dark leaved perennial is more sun tolerant than many cultivars, with the foliage becoming blacker when grown in full sun. A superb groundcover plant, Bugle is a tough and reliable evergreen that copes in almost any soil conditions. Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' is particularly effective at the front of borders, creeping through rockeries or as groundcover in wildlife gardens where it will attract pollinating insects. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Grow Bugle plants into any moist, well-drained soil. Plants will perform best in partial shade, as full sun can cause leaf scorch. Ajuga will even tolerate poor soils in full shade. Makes excellent ground cover for shady corners.
Ajuga plants are virtually maintenance-free, and do not required any pruning. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps every three years to maintain their vigour.
