Notes: Depending on the gardener, Aguga is their looked on as a ground cover or a weed. Ajuga ‘Chocolate Chip’ is a bit better behaved than its species parent, but still an enthusiastic grower so don’t put it where it you don’t want it to sprawl. What’s special about Ajuga in general is that it will grow in difficult shady spots, like the dry shade under trees. Ajuga ‘Chocolate Chip’ is shorter than other Ajuga, less invasive and has narrower, more delicate foliage. The leaves are dark green tinged with bronze or chocolate brown, and its flower are deep blue-purple spikes. This is a good deer resistant ground cover. Recovers well from freeze damage.
