Teucrium Fruticans

Blossom period
February through June
Mediterranean Basin

The shrubby germander is a small evergreen shrub that is ideal for seaside gardens and dry land in climates that are not too cold. Its generally grey foliage with almost white young stems is decorative all year round and aromatic to the touch. From spring to late summer, it produces small, inconspicuous pale blue to mauve flowers which bloom at the tips of its particularly dense leaves. Appearing from April in Mediterranean areas, a little later elsewhere in France, they last until summer, or even the end of summer, depending on the climate, giving 4 to 6 months of continuous flowering!
