Wall Germander (Teucrium Chamaedrys) 50 seeds (#2041)

An excellent edging plant or low clipped hedge (somewhat resembling boxwood), however harsh winters may kill some plants leaving gaps. Mass as a small scale ground cover or group. Rock gardens or herb gardens. Commonly planted in old world knot and herbal gardens.
Teucrium chamaedrys, commonly called wall germander, is a shrubby, woody-based, clump-forming, broad leaf evergreen which is grown ornamentally for its attractive, aromatic, evergreen foliage. Features oval, scalloped, shiny dark green leaves on numerous ascending and spreading stems which collectively form a mound of foliage. Leaves resemble miniature oak leaves. Whorls of two lipped, tubular, pink to purple (less frequently white) flowers (typical mint family) appear in terminal clusters in late spring to early summer. Leaves were formerly used in a variety of medicinal treatments.
Best grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates poor soils as long as drainage is good. Pinch (or shear if leggy or scraggly) stems after flowering to promote bushy, compact growth. Appreciates a sheltered location and winter protection in USDA Zone 5 (including the St. Louis area) where it is evergreen but not reliably winter hardy and may suffer die back in harsh winters.
