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. Teucrium aroanium (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)
