Teucrium (Germander) at Digging Dog
Including Teucrium fruticans, Teucrium chamaedrys, and Teucrium hircanicum
Chamaedrys means “a gift on the ground,” and this Teucrium’s gifts include spikes of pink flowers in the dog days of summer, small, glossy, dark green leaves, and a compact form. It’s useful as a ground cover, edging or low hedge. Create your own knot garden by combining it with Santolina. A hard annual shearing will maintain a rich thicket.
