Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.
The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.
Hedge Germander (Teucrium x lucidrys) Herb in 9cm Pot
Hedge Germander is a shrubby, woody perennial with a spreading habit, that has been used in traditional knot gardens as it responds well to hard clipping in spring or autumn, for best results, cut Teucrium x lucidrys back after flowering.
Teucrium x lucidrys is originally from Europe and Southwest Asia, and although only reaching heights of 10-30cm, it is a fabulous addition to the garden for its attractive foliage and stunning flowers. It is also particularly useful in dry soils and gravel gardens as it is drought-resistant.
The lipped flowers are a mixture of pale pink to deep purple and are carried on long spikes in clusters in mid to late summer. The leaves are oval, shiny green on top and hairy underneath. This is a plant for warm, well-drained lime-rich soil and eminently suitable for walls and rockeries.
This is a wonderful plant for bees and wasps.
Although Hedge Germander is reputed to have some medicinal properties, self medication is not recommended as ingestion can cause liver damage.
