Greek Mountain Tea
Endearing, yet rugged and a “cure-all” medicinal to boot, this plucky Cretan native should be welcomed into the dry, well draining crannies of your garden. Clustered small pale yellow flowers populate spaced whorls on short upright spires, which emerge from a dense low growing mound of slim gray foliage blanketed with downy soft, white hairs.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide.
