Ajuga Chocolate Chip, also known as bugleweed, is a low-growing creeping groundcover. This particular selection is prized for its handsome evergreen foliage with deep burgundy-chocolate tones. During cooler weather, the plants turn quite dark and may lighten up somewhat during the heat of summer. Its mat-forming habit does a superb job suppressing weeds, so maintenance is a breeze! 'Chocolate Chip' ajuga forms a colorful 3" high carpet that is topped with dozens of 6" spikes of blue flowers in late spring and early summer. It can grow 8-12" wide in a season and up to 36" wide overall. It is normally unbothered by deer and rabbits.
