Mediterranean Germander and Canary Sage Germander are in contrast to their mostly herbaceous continental relatives perennial, woody small shrubs with distinct, smooth, densely silvery-grey haired, aromatic leaves and nice axillary born, funnel shaped, orange to red or pale rose flowers. The Canary Sage Germander is the only species on the islands and endemic to open spots in xerophytic shrub formations on all western islands including Gran Canaria, where it is always quite rarely seen. Seeds are always scarce. All species require a well drained, rather rocky or sandy substrate in full sun throughout the year. Keep cooler in winter with reduced watering in an always sunny spot at a minimum of some 5°C.
Sow flat on any rich, very well drained soil. Keep seedlings very sunny throughout the year, but especially in winter at a minimum of some 15°C.
