Wall germander is a small, shrubby perennial flower. It has glossy, dark green, toothed leaves that grow on tidy mounds of upright stems.
In mid-summer, it produces upright spikes of purple flowers. The flowers are irresistable to bees and butterflies. It can also be sheared to form a low hedge.
Wall germander is a beautiful, small plant. Its leaves and flowers are very attractive, making it an excellent plant for masses at the front of a planting bed.
The branches will die back partway over the winter. Cut them back to live growth in the spring.
