Purchased half a dozen in the last few years as teucrium ackermannii. Tried to add it to ATP database and learned this is not a recognized species name. Its a ground cover much like Teucrium cossonii but has serrated leaves and a little more silvery/grey. Iv'e included a photo of both to avoid any confusion that it might be cossonii. I'v also sent an email to the grower to see if she can provide me with any info. Info from any quarter would be appreciated. I tip my hat to you.

Here's an amusing blog entry (from the blog of a border collie Smiling ) about the nonexistence of the name T. ackermannii.

Yes I ran across that on my romp through all the highs and lows of the WWW tying to ID this nice Teucrium. Quite the rant.
