Greek Mountain Tea
This tough Mediterranean herb forms a decorative carpet of felted silver leaves. During spring, furry green spikes of acid-yellow flowers appear. A perfect ground cover for any sun-baked spot. This variety hails from Crete and is known locally as Malotira where it is made into a tea said to be high in antioxidants.
Thriving in dry hot conditions, plant in full sun. Water during establishment. Remove spent flowers to maintain a neat habit, and use flowers to make a lovely herbal tea. Dislikes cold wet winters.
