Chocolate Chip Ajuga

Chocolate Chip Ajuga

The Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip', Ajuga x 'Chocolate Chip', is a useful ground cover with short spikes of blue flowers. This Ajuga has unusually narrow foliage of dark green, overlaid with chocolate-brown, forming a very low clump. It is most noted for its dwarf habit and its chocolate foliage. The flowers appear in spring and are 4' in height with a plant width of 12-18'. It is not as invasive as most other Ajuga and best-planted 6-9' apart for a quick cover. Ajuga 'Chocolate Chips' will do best in a shaded area but will adapt to morning sun. It prefers moist soil with a good drainage but will tolerate moderately dry areas. Avoid soggy conditions. Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip' looks great in rock gardens and in front of borders and in containers. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to Ajuga, not to mention being deer resistant and a low allergen.
