Teucrium Chamaedrys

 

Wall Germander

Teucrium species, commonly called 'Germanders', are rich in essential oils. They are valued as ornamental plants and a pollen source, and some species are of culinary and/or medical value. This evergreen perennial has woody stems that are clothed in small green leaves, which emit a spicy aroma when they are brushed past or gently bruised. There are a few shrubby species or subshrubs which are reliably evergreen if sheltered from cold winds. T. Chamaedrys has lustrous green, holly-like leaves which are grey-felted underneath. It produces loose spikes of rosy-purple flowers.
