Silverheels Horehound

Marrubium

Horehound

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.

Marrubium rotundifolium full sun  new plant

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.

Blooms June–July

Size: 4"–6" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Customer Comment:

“I don't know how you folks do it, but the plants were in immaculate condition, cool and slightly damp upon arrival without a leaf out of place!  ...Digging Dog deserves high praise for being able to accomplish such a feat from one sizzling hot coast to another.”
