More About Black Scallop Ajuga...

Black Scallop produces the darkest foliage color of any Ajuga. The sumptuous shades of dark purple and midnight black leaves are larger than those of  'Mahogany' Ajuga and the foliage color is intensified both by sun and cold temperatures. 'Black Scallop' has been found to be resistant to powdery mildew and it is heat resistant. This stunning black ground cover is topped in late spring through early summer with intense deep blue, fragrant flowers held on small flower spikes that rise above the foliage. This is a patented plant that will not reproduce by seed.

The very dark, uniform, glossy, scalloped foliage of 'Black Scallop' is a fast-growing plant that will spread by stolons to form an attractive groundcover with a dense habit. Great for use in garden beds or foundation plantings. One plant can spread into a patch up to 36 inches wide. It is also an excellent addition to container gardens where it's foliage color and texture provide unique contrast to other plants. 

Black Scallop Ajuga is very easy to grow and maintain in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. It prefers moist, humusy soils with good drainage, but tolerates moderately dry ones. The best dark leaf color usually occurs in sunny locations. Provide good air circulation in hot and humid areas where crown rot can be a problem. Larger plantings may be mowed on a high mower setting to remove spent flower spikes and to tidy the appearance of the planting. String trimmers and hedge shears are also effective for removing spent flower spikes.
