Plant Type: Perennials

This attractive small-scale groundcover has glossy, near black, scalloped leaves and a dense growing habit.  The deepest foliage color is achieved when plants are in full sun and cooler temperatures.  From mid to late spring, short spikes of deep blue flowers stand upright above the low, spreading foliage. 'Black Scallop' tends to spread more slowly and stay naturally compact compared to other kinds of Ajuga, making it suitable for use as an edging.   It is reported to be resistant to powdery mildew.
