Black Scallop' is the most attractive Ajuga to come along in recent years. This low growing groundcover will quickly become your new favorite! Brilliant deep blue flowers cover this creeping beauty from May through June, creating a sharp contrast against the shiny, jet-black leaves. The wonderfully dark foliage retains its sharpness all season long in full sun or full shade, although it will be the shiniest with some sun exposure. 'Black Scallop' is perfect for use in the landscape as a mass planting, as a foreground planting or to create interesting texture and color contrasts in combination planters. 'Black Scallop' will easily outperform other Ajuga in the landscape, as it is both heat and drought tolerant once established.
