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 fruticans

Loose, silvery stemmed plant to 4–8 ft. tall and wide (or wider). Gray-green, 1 1/4-in.-long leaves have silvery white undersides, giving the plant an overall silvery gray appearance. Blooms almost year-round, bearing lavender-blue flower spikes at branch ends. Thin and cut back before spring growth begins.
