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 x lucidrys

Grows to 1 ft. tall and 2 ft. wide, with many upright, woody-based stems densely clothed in toothed, dark green, 3/4-in.-long leaves. Red-purple or white summer flowers in loose spikes (white-flowered form is looser). Attracts bees. Use as edging, foreground, low clipped hedge, or small-scale groundcover. Shear back once or twice a year to keep neat and force side branching.
