Teucrium hircanicum (Caucasian Germander) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Sow the seeds indoors (gently pressed into the surface of the growing medium) under lights in warm conditions in early to mid spring.  Or, start in a pot outdoors in early to midsummer. Be aware that sprouting might be slow and erratic. I have read some mentions of this species germinating well after a chilling period, so winter sowing is another option to consider.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

I originally grew Caucasian germander (Teucrium hircanicum, also sold as T. hyrcanicum) about a decade ago and liked it very much. It produces clumps of rich green, aromatic leaves topped with tapering tails of purple flowers, usually in mid to late summer. Height in bloom is 18 to 24 inches. (For more details on how it grows, check out my post Three Neat Plants.) My original plants disappeared a few years ago, and I was just thinking of buying new seed when I found two clumps in different parts of the garden—self-sown seedlings of my original plants, apparently. I am happy to have it back and to be able to offer the seeds to other gardeners. Caucasian germander may flower the first year from an early sowing. Full sun to light shade; average to moist (but not soggy) soil. Zones 6 (maybe 5) to 9.

2022-collected seeds are sold out. I hope to collect again in October 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
