HEDGE GERMANDER (Teucrium lucidrys)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture / more pictures


Fully hardy evergreen which makes an excellent low, neat, flowering hedge, which we have nick-named 'Charlie's Choice' as it has replaced diseased box hedges at Highgrove. Small, dense, dark green leaves with reddish edges with pleasant spicy aroma are topped with many spikes of dainty pink flowers in summer and early autumn. Medicinal plant, traditionally used in knot gardens. Soil neutral to alkaline, in clay soils it may be necessary to work some grit to provide a well-drained soil.
HEDGE Trim flower spikes after flowering and foliage in autumn, can be pruned back to 2in (5cm) to keep tidy through the winter as the plant quickly grow in the spring and flowers. For hedges 12-18ins (30-45cm), plant 6-9ins (15-23cm) apart.
SHRUB 18ins x 9ins (45cm x 23cm).
