Will Greek Germander grow in Amarillo, Texas - We are looking for plants that can grow in very dry conditions, hot and cold weather and windy. Our water is getting very expensive so wanting to Xeriscape and want to know if Greek Germander would be a good choice.

Like very much of the landscape design. What type of rocks/pebbles? - We have a bunch of shrubs and mulch that our builder planted in the area from walkway of guest parking to the house that could use this inspirational design. What rocks or pebbles do you use on the ground? Will this help with weeds issue he have currently with the mulch. Thanks!

Under the plants is a 7/16" Santa Fe Brown (tan) Gravel and the surrounding path is Grey Crusher Fines. There is breathable weed fabric under the crusher fines.

If you are referring to the ground cover in the foreground (Greek Germander- Teucrium aroanium) it can grow from Zones 5 to 10 (cold hardy to about -10 degrees F but can take temperatures well over 100).

Hi Hunter- will these plants also thrive in an 8a zone? I'm in central Texas, have a backyard with plenty of full sun. I'm trying to minimize sod coverage. We want to save water but also because of having dogs, the grass is always overstressed.

These should be fine as we are Zone 7 here and these plants like heat.
