AJUGA CHOCOLATE CHIP Bugleweed Valfreda Shade Garden Ground Cover Live Plant Blue Flowers Bronze Leaves Starter Size 4 Inch Pot Emeralds tm


Chocolate Chip Bugleweed is a type of Ajuga, which is a large genus of the Mint Family, made up predominately of low growing, spreading ground cover plants with blue flowers. Chocolate Chip was developed by Valfredda Nursery in Italy, where it is known as Ajuga x tenori or Valfredda.

Overall it grows lower, slower, and more dense, maturing at only about 2 to 4 inches tall, and is easier to contain and much better behaved, and more disease resistant than other types. It has smaller, more narrow leaves than many other types in a dark olive toned green that blushes purple to chocolate brown, and produces masses of medium to pale blue flowers in spikey spires in late Spring, is cold tolerant, and has a multitude of versatile and interesting uses.

Use Chocolate Chip Bugleweed as a low maintenance, easy care ground cover, a replacement for turf grass in shady areas, as edging or filler for paths and stepping stones, incorporate it into mixed perennial beds, mixed garden pots, or raised planters or baskets. It is an excellent choice for the deeply shaded areas where other ground covers fail. Once well established it can be mowed and trimmed much as grass would be.
