A small shrub with narrow silver-grey leaves. Two-tone purple flowers in round clusters in summer. Prefers well-drained soil. A more unusual alpine, not often seen.
Typical woodsage leaf. Long, narrow spikes of dusky-maroon, purple flowers for weeks, from late June. Gently self-seeds.
Teucrium X Lucidrys (syn. T. Chamaedrys)
A good dwarf hedging plant. Lilac pink flowers in late summer. Can be pruned right back in late February and March to keep its shape. Loved by the bumble bees.
The round green leaves make a low clump, covered in summer by flat heads of purple flowers with a creamy white lower lip.
