Ajuga reptans ‘Black Scallop’ is a beautiful evergreen plant with unusual near-black, scalloped leaves. This plant is perfect for ground-cover as its glossy leaves form a low spreading carpet and can withstand shaded areas. Typically, upright spikes of dark blue flowers appear from May and can last until early July. It reaches a maximum height of 20 cm and spread of 90 cm. Perfect plant which will add colour to your garden all year round. Suitable for planting in beds, borders, containers and in shaded areas. Its foliage compliments plants of a brighter color.
Suggested Care: Ajuga reptans ‘Black Scallop’ is a shade lover so planting in partial or full shade is recommended. It is easily grown in well-drained soils but does love moisture. However, it can withstand almost all soils once they are rich in moisture. It will tolerate full sun but constant moisture must be provided. If the plants are dried out the leaves may shrivel.
Planting Instructions: Firstly break up the soil well before planting and dig a hole twice the size of the pot. Remove plant from the pot by tapping the rim of the pot in ‘up side down’ position. For this purpose you should not pull the plant from the pot. Firm soil after planting and water regularly for the first month.
