Details

2-3" tall x 18-24" wide. This outstanding Mediterranean Teucrium has been a very impressive performer in our Xeriscape Demonstration Garden these past years. Gray Creeping Germander grows into a low mound of thin, silver leaves that form a beautiful backdrop for the honey-scented deep lavender-pink flowers. Shear back 1/3 in mid-spring to reinvigorate established plants. Plant in "lean" well-drained soils and mulch with gravel for best performance. (cutting propagated)

    Comments about High Country Gardens Teucrium aroanium:

    It has grown beyond expectation for the first season. The DEER have not chewed on it or the TURKEYS have not tried to dig it up. I am turning to your nursery for future landscape needs. Everything has been a trial and error with frustration in researching plant material.

      Give it some time, and this charming little creeping germander will set it's roots into those hot and dry spots that make other plants shrivel and die. Just don't give it too much water!

      Comments about High Country Gardens Teucrium aroanium:

      Have grown this plant for 4 years now, and it's one of my absolute favorites. It has the lovely, mounding form of a spring bloomer like candytuft or alyssum, but blooms from mid-summer on. Bees love it, people always ask about it. The foliage is evergreen, and the flowers are a gorgeous orchid purple. Much prettier than the catalog photo! My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to reseed. I would love more of it!

        Planted in full sun in a highly visible area along the curb. Fills in a large area of bare dirt, where gravel washed out during monsoons. Already had some well-established plants, that remain evergreen and attractive year-round, and the new ones are filling in nicely as well.

        Q & A

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
