Description Briscoe's Tips
 

Teucrium chamaedrys

These perennial plants are wonderful evergreen shrubs that work well as both a small hedge or as a ground cover. These sturdy little perennial flowers are easy to grow, and do well in almost any zone. If you want a formal hedge or knot garden, simply keep it well-pruned right after blooming. Germander makes a more fragrant and showy alternative hedge shrub than Boxwoods, as it produces small pink flowers and its leaves have a garlic scent that will also make for a nice, aromatic wreath. Germander can also be pruned easily, much like a Bonsai tree for the more creative gardener.

In the past Germander has been used medicinally to cure gout, and has similar properties as Horehound when mixed with honey, for curing coughs and asthmatic episodes.


Because of its creeping root system, Germander makes a great solution for eroding areas such as steep river banks and cliffs and also grows easily in pots or containers.

Grower's Exchange Plants April 20, 2015
Reviewer: Gary Smith from Ashland, AL United States  
I have ordered several plants from Grower's Exchange, because of the condition the plants arrive in.  This was certainly true of my order of Upright Germander.  I am a beekeeper and bees LOVE this plant.  The plants I received to border my wildflower and herb garden (bee garden) with were ready to set in the ground and go to work.  They continue to thrive weeks later.

Quality plants and packaging November 24, 2014
Reviewer: kevin steinmetz from jackson heights, NY United States  
I could not believe the expense which went into the packaging.  Definetly cost more than the amount charged for handeling.  Plants arrived in excellent condition and immediately adapted to their new home. Even for late fall!   This was my second purchase from the growers and will definitely buy again in the future, you can't go wrong!
