This shrub can reach 1.5m as well in height as in width. They grow very fast and produce flowers the second year if grown from seeds. The main requirements for this species are: full sun to part shade, medium watering and well-drained soil. Teucrium bicolor can tolerate frost and some snow, and can be pruned to give it a nice shape.

Propagation from seeds: during autumn, using a mix of two portions compost, two portions sharp river sand and one portion regular garden soil. Cover the sowing mix with a fine layer of sharp river sand, distribute the seeds and barely cover with another layer of sand. Place the tray in a cold frame or a cold greenhouse. Transplant into individual bags/pots once the plantlets have developed two true leaves.
