|The subtle Germanders provide leaf texture and color to rock gardens, edging, herb gardens, containers and parking strips. Drought-tolerant once established, shrubs thrive in poor, rocky soils in sun and heat. One variety, Teucrium marum, Cat Thyme, has tiny, fussy leaves and small, purple flowers that cats cannot resist. Teucrium hircanicum is grown for its vibrant purple flower spikes. Teucrium prostratum makes a good, small-scale ground cover. The delightful Wood Germander, Teucrium scorodonia crispum, has frilly, curled leaf edges. Can be used as a casual hedge. Sold in containers throughout the growing season.
Wall Germander leaves form neat mounds that make a refined, diminutive hedge. Shear purple flowers when faded. Attractive to bees. Shrubby with creeping rootstock. Upright to spreading stems. Leaves are aromatic when crushed.
