Sarada's Greek mountain tea

Sideritis syriaca ‘P023S'

Sarada\'s Greek mountain tea | Sideritis syriaca | Plant Select
Sarada's Greek mountain tea is a striking replacement for traditional lamb's ear plant. This beauty has the soft leaves of lamb's ear, but it stays compact, doesn't run and resists disease. And it's typically both rabbit and deer resistant!

This waterwise perennial has soft, silver-gray foliage with a light yellow flower. Flowers and foliage radiate out from a central point creating a very pleasing form. With its light foliage and flowers, it pairs beautifully with a variety of other flower plants, particularly those with pink, purple and magenta blooms.
