A splendidly gothic variey of bugle, as ajuga is commonly known, Black Scallop has glossy rounded leaves that are deepest inky purple, pretty much as close to black as you can get, and, in spring and into summer, short spikes of deep blue flowers that form a nice contrast against the foliage. Vigorous and pretty much evergreen. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 6 in. 1 litre pot.

ADD TO BASKET

A good spreader which will cover 12 to 18 inches in most positions, though it doesn't like it bone dry.

Ajuga has common names bugle or bugleweed. We are not sure why but wonder if it could be because of the shape of the flower spikes suggests a horned shape? Answers on a postcard please.
