Teucrium scorodonia ‘Crispum Marginatum’ - Perennial, evergreen ground cover. 30 cms height, 60 cms width. Part to full shade, but will take a little more sun if kept moist.

A medicinal herb, used in traditional medicine since ancient times. It has the same medicinal properties as the standard wood stage. Curly wood sage spreads by underground rhizomes.
