(Ajuga tenorii ‘Chocolate Chip’)
The ultimate weed suppressing ground cover of luxuriant foliage & masses of spring flowers. Chocolate Chip forms a dense mat of chocolate leaves that quickly colonise the ground.
The densely produced pagoda-like spikes of deep blue flowers cover the plants in mid spring.
POSITION & USES
Excellent for a shady, moist spot, or in full sun given adequate watering. Great as a border plant or massed as a weed suppressing ground cover that will tolerate limited foot traffic.
Easily grown in a wide range of soils. Its only demand is some summer watering. Trim back in late winter if needed.
Regular applications of Seasol and PowerFeed will keep it looking its best.
