Germander

Teucrium

Germander is a semishrubby plant grown for its attractive, fragrant foliage and flowers, which might be pink, white, lavender, or blue depending on species. Most cultivated germanders are Mediterranean natives, so they prefer dry soil conditions and full sun, although they tolerate part sun. Plants might be sheared to make a low hedge or shaped for use in knot gardens.

more varieties for germander

'Fairy Dust' germander
'Fairy Dust' germander

Fruity germander
Fruity germander
Teucrium cossonii majoricum is a low-growing groundcover just 4-6 inches tall, but it spreads 2-3 feet wide. The silver-gray foliage has a strong, fruity aroma, which is the source of its common name. It's also known as pineapple germander and Majorcan teucrium. It bears lavender-blue flowers in spring and fall with sporadic bloom throughout the summer. Zones 7-10
Wall germander
Wall germander
Teucrium chamaedrys is commonly grown in herbal knot gardens because it can be sheared to maintain a compact shape. It naturally grows 12-20 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide. The glossy green foliage is evergreen in warm regions or semi-evergreen in cold climates. The plant bears purplish-pink flowers that attract bees and butterflies in summer. Zones 5-9

plant germander with

Lavender
A great companion plant, the silvery foliage of lavender complements the glossy green leaves of wall germander, and the fragrant purple blooms of lavender blend well with the pinkish-purple flowers of germander.
Santolina
Santolina requires the same growing conditions as germander. Choose either the green or gray foliage form of santolina to create a textural contrast with the scalloped leaves of germander.
Lemon thyme
This wonderful groundcover is slightly shorter than germander, so it makes a good filler between hedges of germander in knot gardens.
