Chocolate Chip Bugleweed - Ajuga x tenorii 'Chocolate Chip'
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 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.
Purple 3" high flowers in late spring/early summer
Cold hardy to zones 3 to 9
Heat zones 9 to 1
Part sun to full sun
Doesn't mind moist soil
Invasive in some areas. Great in containers.
Trim back runners in late spring to control growth
Comes in a 4" pot
