Teucrium cossonii majoricum

Lamiaceae (Labiatae)
Perennials

TEUCRIUM

Mediterranean natives with aromatic foliage and whorls of little flowers. These are tough plants that endure poor, rocky soils; they can’t stand wet or poorly drained soils but will tolerate regular watering where drainage is good.

Teucrium cossonii majoricum

Narrow, silvery gray leaves to 1 in. long form a mound to 8 in. high and 1/2 ft. wide. Virtually continuous show of small, rosy purple, honey-scented flowers in dense heads (most profuse in late spring, early summer). Good rock garden plant or small-scale groundcover. Also sold as T. majoricum and T. cussonii; a very similar plant is T. polium pii-fontanii.
