Ajuga reptans Black Scallop


Carpet Bugle

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.030.130


(=‘Binblasca’) Also known as Bugleweed, this makes a superb evergreen groundcover. Plants quickly form a low carpet of rounded, glossy leaves, purple-black in colour with a crinkly or scalloped texture. Short spikes of deep blue flowers appear in mid to late spring. Vigorous habit. Dislikes very dry shade. A fairly sun-tolerant selection, in cool-summer regions direct sun will bring out the best colour in the leaves. Will perform well in tubs or mixed containers. USPP#15815: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
