Teucrium

Teucrium hyrcanicum ‘Purple Tails’ full sun

Held in playful repose—some straight, some slightly bent—the long, animal-like floral tails host tightly set jade green buds. Upon opening, copious Veronica-style spikes entice us with lavish deep fuchsia-purple shades.

Native to the Caucasus Mountains and Iran, this bushy, clump-forming perennial, with its aromatic sage-green textured foliage, forges a welcome sight in any border, or it can be pruned for an attractive, out-of the-ordinary hedge.

Blooms July–October.

Size: 18"–2' high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Teucrium hyrcanicum ‘Purple Tails’ (P-1324)

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week - Not only do we love Liatris 'Kobold', but it's coveted by florists, butterflies & bees for itsl showy, vibrant hued flowers. ‘Kobold’ means “goblin”—and big-headed it is. This compact cultivar has a smaller stature than others of its species, and its erect stems rise solidly from the earth. Grassy foliage plays host to an outstanding bristle of rosy lilac blooms. A vibrant garden guest, contrast ‘Kobold’ against Phlomis fruticosa’s yellow blooms and harmonize with the pinkish panicles of Calamagrostis brachytricha.
