Teucrium aroanium

You want long blooming? You’ve got it in spades with this charming, fragrant groundcover hailing from Greece. Masses of 3/4” two-lipped mauve flowers appear in late Spring and continue well into Fall! The bee-attracting flowers exude a honey scent while the oblong silvery-green leaves offer a pleasing woodsy fragrance. Like most Teucriums, this “Gray Creeping Germander” is a tough little guy, managing very well with little water and poor soil, provided it has good drainage. Topping out at 3” tall, this stoloniferous perennial creeps out to cover a good 18” in width. An excellent choice for a dry garden, provides a soft carpet next to cacti and succulents, and spills nicely over the edge of beds or containers. Deer resistant.
