Bush Germander

Teucrium fruticans 'Azureum'

The silvery leaves of bush germander and its hundreds of sky-blue flowers make this is a great contrasting plant for any Mediterranean planting, or in more formal gardens as a sheared hedge. It is well known for attracting bees and is resistant to deer predation. We often harvest this one for its shimmery foliage as an addition to fresh flower bouquets.
