Greek Mountain Tea

Sideritis syriaca

Sideritis

Sideritis syriaca full sun

Endearing, yet rugged and a “cure-all” medicinal to boot, this plucky Cretan native should be welcomed into the dry, well draining crannies of your garden. Clustered small pale yellow flowers populate spaced whorls on short upright spires, which emerge from a dense low growing mound of slim gray foliage blanketed with downy soft, white hairs.

Nestle Sideritis syriaca between steps or rocks near other heat-loving plants such as Saponaria ‘Max Frei’, Origanum ‘Bristol Cross’, Lavenders and Santolina ‘Nana’. Brew a tea from its leaves and blooms to boost your immune system, combat colds, reduce inflammation and soothe your nerves.

Blooms June – September.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Sideritis syriaca (P-1672)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
