Ajuga reptans 'Chocolate Chip' is a classic cultivar of bugleweed, an evergreen perennial renowned for its glossy, purple and green foliage and its vivid powder to cobalt-blue flowers that bloom from early spring to mid summer. 'Chocolate Chip' is well-regarded for its attractive foliage year-round and its tolerance of foot-traffic, 'Chocolate Chip' is an excellent and aesthetically pleasing groundcover choice.

Ajuga reptans typically grows to only 4-6" tall, and thrives in full sun to part shade as well and a variety of soil types when provided with adequate water. Ajuga in general is valued as a low-maintenance, weed-suppressing groundcover that makes for an attractive and colorful underplanting or weed control choice throughout the year, with the added benefit of resistance to foot traffic, making 'Chocolate Chip' an excellent lawn alternative or path planting in shadier locations.

Note: Care should be taken in choosing a good planting location for Ajuga of any kind, as it has been listed as invasive in woodland environments in several states due to its spreading habit.
