at Digging Dog
Our selections emphasize pearly flanneled leaves and tidy unflappable habits that readily acquiesce to hot, dry desolate sites. Well-drained soil ensures Horehoundís prosperity, while other drought tolerant plants such as Oregano, Thyme and Lavender make ideal companions.
Indigenous to Turkey’s dry, higher elevations, this energetic and drought tolerant perennial couples dashing silver-rimmed foliage with a brawny semievergreen habit. Small rounded gray-green leaves donning frosted undersides define the dense velvet-soft shimmering patch. A no-fuss tactile delight that cherishes lean well-drained soil, but detests hot humid summers, Silverheels Horehound can edge a path, cascade over a pot, spill down a slope or adorn the rockery.
Size: 4"–6" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
