Hard to find “black” foliage you can walk on!

Looking for something really different to put between your stepping stones or as a groundcover in your perennial beds? You should check out Black Scallop Bugleweed (Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop').

Besides the compelling color of the leaves– such a dark purple they are almost black – there are the tiny spikes of deep-lavender flowers it shoots up in the spring! It forms a 4-inch mat of color so dark that your stepping stones stand out like beacons.

The leaves are upright and wavy, which brings a nice texture to your garden, too. 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.

You can’t go wrong with this fast-growing, hardy groundcover. You can even mow it after it blooms to maintain a neat appearance. Easy to care for and an attractive source of dramatic color, Ajuga Black Scallop will be a perfect accent to your landscape this year.
