at Digging Dog
These evergreen shrubs and subshrubs are among the very toughest and therefore great for difficult situations; they thrive in heat and poor,
rocky soils. They also offer versatility, fitting into formal or informal designs with equal ease.
Chamaedrys means “a gift on the ground,” and this Teucrium’s gifts include spikes of pink flowers in the dog days of summer, small, glossy, dark green leaves, and a compact form. It’s useful as a ground cover, edging or low hedge. Create your own knot garden by combining it with Santolina. A hard annual shearing will maintain a rich thicket.
Size: 18" high x 12" wide. Zone 5/6.

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
