Gardeners' Notes:

At first I thought this plant would be delicate because of the unusual 'crisped' ruffled edges of the leaves, but it has turned out to be a tough little plant. Low to the ground, it has spread to about 2 feet wide in a part shady spot that is out of the watering zone. It gets water when the patio is hosed off occasionally. Very attractive foliage...very cute. Deer don't touch teucrium.
