Chocolate Chip Bugleweed - Ajuga x tenorii 'Chocolate Chip'

Regular price $5.99

Doesn't the name Bugleweed put a smile on your face when you say it? It sounds like it's from a science fiction novel or from one of the Harry Potter books. Lol!

This ground cover is a tough one. It's a bit invasive when planted in the ground but it can easily be shovel-pruned in the spring to control the spread. Drought tolerant when established and step-able!

In potted miniature gardens, it is surprisingly tolerant of growing in a container for years. Just pinch back the runners in the spring when they appears.

The wonderful foliage adds not only a great color-contrast to your miniature garden, but the "big" flat leaves add some much-needed texture to the garden bed as well. 3" tall flower-stalks in the late spring/early summer are just the icing on the cake.

In colder winters, the leaves will blush a dark burgundy color. The green color will come back when the weather warms up in spring. 

  • Purple 3" high flowers in late spring/early summer
  • Grows 3" to 6" high - the temporary flower spikes are the tallest
  • Spreads on runners - trim back every spring or redirect without hesitation
  • Cold hardy to zones 3 to 9, or to -30F
  • Heat zones 9 to 1
  • Evergreen
  • Part sun to full sun
  • Doesn't mind moist soil

  • Trim back runners in late spring to control growth
