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)

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
