Chocolate Chip Ajuga, also known as bugleweed, is a great ground cover for partial sun settings. New leaves emerge milk-chocolate, tinged plum-purple. Spikes of blue blooms rise 4 to 6 inches above the foliage in spring. Great for beneath trees and shrubs, where little else will grow. Useful in borders, the shade garden, in rock gardens and containers—will even tolerate moderate foot traffic.

Prefers regular watering, but will adapt to drier conditions once established. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to Ajuga, not to mention it is deer resistant. If one is looking for a perennial ground cover to excel in a hard to grow shady area, Chocolate Chip Ajuga is the way to go!

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
