Teucrium chamaedrys is an upright, mounding sub-shrub with small, glossy green leaves that have serrated edges. It produces purple-rose flower spikes in early summer. Also known as Germander, Teucrium chamaedrys spreads by underground rhizomes. Its evergreen foliage is sometimes pruned for use as a perennial knot garden border.
Teucrium chamaedrys prefers full sun to light shade and neutral to alkaline, well-drained soil. It is tolerant of drought once established. It can withstand coastal conditions.
