Ajuga is a common plant related to the wild bugle, but selected for leaf colour and flower spikes. The foliage is robust, evergreen and dark green, making a good background to the upright spikes of dark blue flowers, produced throughout late spring to mid summer. Ajuga is very versatile, equally at home as ground cover under trees or shrubs as in a sunny flower border, and even in containers. It's especially useful as background foliage in winter containers of ivies, santolina and pansies. Ajuga 'Black Scallop' produces evergreen, nearly black leaves.
