Description / Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip' Bugleweed

Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip' Bugleweed is simply the best bugleweed for midnight dark foliage. The large, scallop-shaped leaves—evergreen in mild, warm climates—is only one of this ground cover's merits. From late spring into early summer, 'Chocolate Chip' cloaks itself in bright blue blooms crowded along short spikes. Very showy, the blossoms offset the dark foliage beautifully.

Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip' Bugleweed covers ground quickly, forming a weed-choking mat that replaces artificial mulches and adds dramatic color to the sunny to partly shaded garden. If planted in mass, with each plant about a foot apart, this bugleweed fills in in no time; however, it also spreads up to about 3 feet wide, so plants may be spaced farther apart for more gradual coverage.

'Chocolate Chip' adapts to varying soils and moisture levels and achieves its darkest leaf color in full sun, making it a superb choice for mixed containers, where it will gracefully trail over the sides of the planter.

'Chocolate Chip' is the bugleweed your garden and containers deserve. Its foliage is oversized, its habit very low and mat-forming, and its maintenance low.
