Disappointing Teucrium


Disappointing Teucrium (Teucrium chamaedrys)

The flowers are a bit insipid. Not a keeper, although the foliage is so pretty with its curly edges.

It's a shame when that happens but if you don't try you don't know.

DD - how about a compromise, he can keep the teucrium if you can have pseudopanax ferox?

I managed to get a Ferox in the end.......it was in the sale lol he has a thing for Teucrium, I keep cutting Fruiticans down.....it is now a shadow of its former self!!

I grow teucrium x lucidrys which is a woody sprawler and the most popular flower in the garden with the bees. Counted two dozen on it the other day.
