Felty Germander is a low growing mounding herb native to the western Mediterranean. Its flowers are small and range from pink to white. The leaves are silver white and have a pleasant, gentle, velvety texture.
The aromatic foliage was commonly used for salads or soft cheese. There are quite a lot of references on the internet to say that it is used for various treatments in traditional medicine, although caution should be taken as research has found that it has potential for causing liver toxicity.
Suits exposed coastal gardens. It will grow in very poor dry soils and does not require any additional water other than normal seasonal rainfall.
We are a plant nursery in the Algarve specialising in dry mediterranean species. We propagate and grow our own stock in conditions they are likely to endure when they are planted out.
We grow plants that are adapted to the dry land conditions in Portugal and southern Spain, both mediterranean perennials and succulents.
We choose plants that require very little water and maintenance. We produce a range of dry land plants that are typical of the worlds mediterranean regions. These are available to order ready for planting in the wetter months of the year. Please order the plants you need and we’ll have them ready at the best time for planting.
To ensure your new plants adapt and establish quickly, we produce them in special anti-spiral root pruning containers and a range of fibre pots (no plastic waste) with our own tried and tested growing media.
Please note we have no retail outlet or garden centre and are not open to the public. For more information you can contact us here.
