Snow on Mt. Fuji is gorgeous, but dangerous. Fall trees crisscross atop it, as if suspended from a delicate net of wind. The mountain is a harsh contrast to the slopes of lavender that lie below. A few steps away, on the wall, a fox with white whiskers and half-closed eyes sleepily watches.Germander is a semishrubby perennial grown for its attractive, fragrant foliage and flowers, which might be blue, pink, purple, or white depending on species. Tolerant of pruning, germander is a favorite plant for knot gardens where it can be sculpted into serpentine shapes. It’s also easily shaped into borders or low hedges or planted in rock gardens. Not interested in sculpting this plant? Plant it among perennials, where it will add evergreen color. Or pair it with other pollinator plants for a colorful combo that attracts winged visitors.

Regarding pruning in general: The best time to prune this plant is right after flowering, because spent germander flowers give it an unkempt appearance. Pruning restores germander's structural presence in the garden. Pruning after flowering also encourages the plant to channel energy into creating new foliage. If needed, remove a few inches of green, leafy growth (along with the flower stalks) to reduce plant size. Avoid pruning plants in fall as the new growth will be susceptible to winter damTeucrium chamaedrys is commonly grown in herbal knot gardens because it can be sheared to maintain a compact shape. It naturally grows 12-20 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide. The glossy green foliage is evergreen in warm regions or semi-evergreen in cold climates. The plant bears purplish-pink flowers that attract bees and butterflies in summer.So we’ve scoured nurseries, growers, online garden centres and retailers to find which have plants available for delivery.
