This hybrid ajuga was introduced by a nursery in Italy called Valfredda for which it is named. The powers that be in North America thought that Ajuga 'Valfredda' didn't have enough market appeal so on our side of the pond it's called 'Chocolate Chip'. It's all just too complicated for this cute little ajuga with small burgundy leaves and deep blue flowers. Combine with gold foliage for a bold contrast.
