In my Zone 7A garden, Petersburg, Virginia, I planted a six-inch pot of "Summer Sunshine" germander last spring, and it has come through the winter and is spreading in a sunny spot in the back yard. I'm thinking of buying some more and using it in the front yard around the base of a couple of limbed-up boxwoods. It's lovely.

Found this at a small nursery. Just love it! The bright yellow-green foliage looks great all season. Perfect against the red sedums on either side. It's in it's second season in my garden and growing slowly, even with being moved once last fall.
