Here comes the sun! (or have I just jinxed it?)

Artemisia alba Canescens
Artemisia alba Canescens
The best, I think, of the genus, making low billowy mounds and cushions of silvery white extremely fine foliage. Excellent with small bulbs. Any well-drained soil in sun. Slightly taller flowering stems appear in late summer. The flowers are brown and probably best removed.
1L pots ~ £6



Teucrium flavum
Teucrium flavum
A pretty glossy-leaved shrublet with upright stems of pale yellow flowers in summer. For dry sunny sites.
1L pots ~ £5




Teucrium marum
Teucrium marum
A very small shrub with neat glossy leaves and heads of pink flowers. For dry sunny sites (and protect from cats who sometimes use it as a sort of superior catnip).
10cm pots ~ £6
