Black Scallop Bugle Weed, also known as Ajuga reptans 'Black Scallop', is a low-growing perennial plant that is prized for its attractive foliage and ease of care. It is a member of the mint family and is native to Europe.

This plant typically grows to a height of 6-9 inches and has a spread of 12-18 inches. It produces glossy, dark purple-black leaves that are semi-evergreen, meaning they will retain their color in mild climates throughout the winter. In the spring, the plant produces short spikes of blue-purple flowers that attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Black Scallop Bugle Weed is a hardy plant that is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, including partial shade and full sun. It prefers moist, well-drained soil, but can also tolerate drought once established. It is also generally resistant to pests and diseases.

This plant is commonly used as a groundcover or edging plant in garden beds and borders, where its attractive foliage can provide a striking contrast to other plants. It can also be used in rock gardens or as a container plant. It is relatively low-maintenance and requires only occasional watering and light pruning to keep it looking its best.
