Teucrium chamaedrys

Germander

Grown for its attractive, fragrant evergreen appearance, wall germander is a woody-based shrub used in hedges. Glossy dark green leaves are accented by rose-pink flowers. Traditionally used in knot gardens. Appreciate some shelter in Zone 5 where it is still evergreen, but may not survive a harsh winter without protection.

12-12 Inches

Spacing:

12" (30 cm)

Prefers well-drained soil.

Hardiness Zone:

Rosy-purple.

Teucrium (teu'-kri-um)

Family: Lamiaceae · Common Name: Germander

Spikes of rosy-purple flowers complement glossy green leaves. Ideal for herb or perennial gardens, and especially well suited for knot gardens or low hedges when clipped to maintain the desired compact shape.
