Teucrium polium
“Felty Germander”

Native to much of the Mediterranean & Middle East, this lovely sub-shrub forms a dense, spreading, drought loving mound of wooly looking, narrow foliage. The flowers are small (variable pink to white) & in clusters & not that exciting - though bees love them - but it is an excellent choice for a dry or rock garden & delightfully worth growing for its beautiful foliage. Long used medicinally as a steam bath for stomach troubles, colds & fevers. Well-drained soil.
