Ajuga - Chocolate Chip

Shade Loving Ground Cover!

The Ajuga ‘Chocolate Chip’, Ajuga x 'Chocolate Chip', is a shade to semi shade low growing ground cover with short spikes of blue flowers.

This Ajuga has unusually narrow foliage of dark green, overlaid with chocolate-brown, forming a very low clump.  It is most noted for its dwarf habit and its dark foliage. 

It will only get 3"-6" tall, but spreads well, and can be used in the hard to cover shady areas, such as under trees and shrubs. It can also be used in rock gardens and containers. The blue spikes of  flowers appear in April-May and are 4” in height. One plant can multiply up to 18"!  It is not as invasive as most other Ajuga and can be planted 6"-9" apart for a quick cover.

Ajuga ‘Chocolate Chips’ will do best in a shaded area but will adapt to morning sun. It prefers moist soil with a good drainage but will tolerate moderately dry areas, but does not do well in soggy areas.

Ajuga ‘Chocolate Chip’ looks great in rock gardens, front of borders, shady areas, and in containers, where it can attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It is deer resistant and a low allergen.

If you are looking for a perennial ground cover to exceed in a hard to grow shady area, Chocolate Chip Ajuga is the way to go!

* Brown Coloring Over Dark Green Leaves
* Use in Shady to Part Shade Areas
* Hardy and Carefree

Will grow in shady areas Review by Shappie
Can be planted in mid October
Favorite groundcover.. Review by Deborosa
I have never had a ground cover so fabulous. I was tired of replacing wood chips under my roses, so i replaced them with chocolate chip ajuga. It filled in, in one season, it completely blocks weeds out. It has performed much better than my Bronze beauty as far as springing back to life in the early spring. I have mine growing in full sun and it seems to do fine even though it is supposed to be shaded. It is a wonderful dark background to my pink knock out roses. I couldnt be happier with it!
