Key Information:  Product Code: AJUGABS

Name: Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' - Rockery or Ground cover perennial. Extremely hardy shrub which has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year. Despatched WITH pot so the roots are safe.

Description: Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' is an outstanding NEW IMPROVED cultivar with shiny glossy textured evergreen deep beetroot purple foliage with medium to dark blue flowers in Spring and Summer. Ajuga 'Black Scallop' offers a considerable advance over other existing varieties. It is reported to be resistant to powdery mildew, and is deer-resistant, drought-tolerant, and performs very well even in very hot weather.This perennial will tolerate sun to full shade so it is very flexible in terms of planting position. 'Black Scallop' will also perform well for you if you choose to plant in tubs, patio pots and hanging baskets. This variety is particularly attractive to beneficial garden insects - bees, butterflies and birds. Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' has lush waxy foliage which hugs the soil, reaching a height of only 3 - 4 inches, making it ideal for rockeries and alpine gardens. 'Black Scallop' will form a dense, compact mat that prevents weeds from poking through once established (but is not invasive). The dark foliage is most vivid in cooler temperatures of spring and autumn and this particularly hardy plant stays evergreen down to temperatures of -20 C! This is a proven winner in my garden, Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop' requires no maintenance and can be walked over and mowed over and it will still grow back just as beautiful as ever!
