'The Governor'
Callistemon violaceus

Teucrium aroanium
Need a long blooming, low care groundcover? This charming, fragrant, stoloniferous perennial is just the ticket. To 3" tall x 18" wide, mauve, bee-attracting flowers appear late Spring to Fall. Excellent in a dry garden or spilling over the edge of a bed or container. Hardy USDA zone 8.
