Teucrium fruticans Ball
Extremely hardy plant with ornamental silvery grey foliage. Bright blue flowers from Autumn to late Spring add to its appeal. Responds well to clipping to form tight clustered balls and mounds.
Plant in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil. Extremely hardy once established, requiring little water, but responds well to a deep watering during hot spells and a feed of slow release fertiliser after flowering. Clip regularly to maintain dense ball form.
Tough nature makes it ideal for harsh Coastal and dry Aussie Mediterranean garden designs.
Clip to maintain shape - can grow to 60cm x 60cm
