Commonly known as Hedge Germander, Teucrium x lucidrys has vibrant pink, tubular flowers, during summer. This bushy, woody-based evergreen shrub has fantastic small rounded dark green leaves. Its low growing habit makes it the perfect alternative to box, especially in areas where box blight is prevalent, as its name implies it can be clipped to make a low hedge.

Hedge Germander requires a well-drained soil and a pH which is neutral to alkaline. It is a salt tolerant plant making it ideal for coastal locations. It can also easily withstand periods of drought and is a great choice for gravel gardens. It prefers to be planted in full sun, in sheltered situations.
