Product Overview

Teucrium chamaedrys
Creeping Germander features delicate spikes of purple flowers rising above the foliage from mid to late summer. Its glossy narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Creeping Germander is an herbaceous evergreen perennial with a mounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Creeping Germander is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Mass Planting
  • Rock/Alpine Gardens
  • General Garden Use
  • Herb Gardens

Features

Creeping Germander features delicate spikes of purple flowers rising above the foliage from mid to late summer. Its glossy narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Planting & Growing

Creeping Germander will grow to be about 10 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 18 inches. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under typical garden conditions. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider covering it with a thick layer of mulch in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This species is not originally from North America. It can be propagated by division.
