Teucrium hircanicum 'purple tails'
This hardy versatile perennial is a great addition to the garden. It copes with a variety of growing conditions, dealing with shade and full sun. It flowers more freely in a sunny position and it gently seeds itself around the garden. It has tall, elegant spires of purple flowers held above sage-like green foliage. In cold winters it will die back and re-emerge in spring but in my garden it acts as an evergreen. Reaches up to 60cm tall and flowers throughout summer. Perennial starter 9cm pot.
