Ajuga Black Scallop, scientifically known as Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop,' is a striking, low-growing perennial plant that thrives in the Irish climate. Its dark foliage and vibrant flowers make it a popular choice among gardeners in Ireland.

Height/Spread: Ajuga Black Scallop typically grows to a height of 4-6 inches (10-15 centimeters) with a spread of 12-18 inches (30-45 centimeters), forming a dense and compact ground cover in Irish gardens.

Position: This Ajuga variety prefers partial shade to full sun, making it adaptable to a range of garden positions in Ireland. It can tolerate different light conditions, but some afternoon shade can help prevent leaf scorch in particularly hot summers.

Soil: Ajuga Black Scallop thrives in well-draining soil but can tolerate a variety of soil types, including clay and loam. It prefers soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH and can handle moist soil conditions, making it suitable for the Irish climate.

Flowering Season: Ajuga Black Scallop produces spikes of deep blue-violet flowers in late spring to early summer, adding a splash of color to Irish gardens. These flowers attract pollinators and create a beautiful contrast against the dark foliage.

Uses: Ajuga Black Scallop has various uses in Irish gardens. It is ideal as a ground cover, providing weed suppression and adding texture to borders, rock gardens, or woodland areas. Its low-growing habit also makes it suitable for edging pathways or as a filler plant in container gardens. Additionally, Ajuga Black Scallop can be used to stabilize slopes or as a living carpet under trees, enhancing the aesthetics of the landscape.
