Ajuga Black Scallop ['Binblasca'] PP15,815 (Black Scallop Carpet Bugle) - Low growing perennial groundcover to 4 to 6 inches tall with glossy large dark blackish-purple scalloped leaves and deep blue flowers in spikes from early spring to early summer. Notably larger foliage than the cultivar 'Mahogany' and is darker colored than 'Catlin's Giant'. Plant in full sun to light shade (brighter light keeps best foliage color) and give regular irrigation - can tolerate drier conditions in shade. Evergreen in mild climates but root hardy to USDA Zone 4. Great for container and particularly striking in combination with lighter colored foliage plants. This plant was a mutation of Ajuga reptans 'Braunherz' that occurred on tissue cultured plants and was discovered by Mike Tristram of the UK and marketed in the US by Plant Haven with US plant patent 15,815.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Ajuga reptans Black Scallop ['Binblasca'] PP15,815.
