Ajuga 'Black Scallop' (Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop')
We have found that Ajuga performs extremely well once it finds a place that it likes. Black Scallop is the best Ajuga for midnight-dark foliage, rich blue blooms, and great adaptability to varying soils and moisture levels, a stunning ground cover with very dark, uniform, glossy scalloped foliage and a dense compact habit.
The leaves are larger than 'Bronze Beauty' and the foliage color is intensified both in full 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/early summer with intense deep blue flowers held on small flower spikes.
