Teucrium aroanium (Gray creeping Germander)

This drought tolerant, evergreen groundcover is excellent for hot sunny areas of the garden. The narrow gray-green foliage is stoloniferous, meaning that it spreads by trailing stems that root as they grow. The fragrant, honeysuckle scented rosy-violet flowers grow in clusters at the tips of the branches. Bees and other beneficial pollinators are attracted to the flowers, so this is a good choice for a Bee-friendly garden.

Teucrium aroanium grows 2-3 inches tall and 18-24 inches wide. It is both deer and rabbit resistant and is hardy to 0°F. It blooms from spring through fall and, although very drought tolerant, will benefit from bi-monthly irrigation once established. Deadhead in early spring to maintain a tidy appearance. This plant’s trailing habit makes it a good choice on slopes as it helps to stabilize soil, thus reducing erosion. This is also a great plant for xeriscaping, rock gardens and other water-wise areas of the landscape. We are growing Teucrium aroanium in 1 gallon containers.
