Black Scallop Bugleweed's attractive small crinkled round leaves emerge burgundy in spring, turning deep purple in color the rest of the year. It features subtle spikes of violet flowers rising above the foliage from mid to late spring. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. Black Scallop Bugleweed is a dense herbaceous evergreen perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.
