Greek Mountain Tea, South (Sideritis syriaca) potted plant, organic

(4 customer reviews)


Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 7 to 10

Woody perennial growing to 18 inches, native to Kriti, Lebanon-Syria and Turkey.  The plant is white leaved, as soft and downy as wooly lamb’s ears, and quite low-lying.  I always keep a lookout for new-to-me Mediterranean herbs, and frankly I believe this one to be one of the most significant ones since … rosemary.  A comely plant, highly desired for those of us blessed with hot, dry summers and cool, moist winters. A great-tasting tea herb with salubrious medicinal applications.  The tea of dried flowering tops is used for treating colds and restless insomnia. Plant prefers full sun and very fast draining soil, being drought tolerant once established.  Space plants 18 inches apart.

    Love my new Greek Mountain tea plants!

    Received plants in good health and well packaged. I kept them in the green house a couple of weeks before moving them out to their forever home. Revamped the moon garden. Hoping someday they will catch up with the other old growth in a couple of years.

    I’m so excited for my Greek Mountain Tea Plants! My friends brought back some dried tea from Greece where they drank it daily and I fell in love with the beautiful tea immediately. Its aroma is pleasant and its effect gentle, comfortaring, and relaxing, something like chamomile only better tasting in my opinion. My plants arrived in excellent condition; still moist, perky and with bodacious roots. Thank you!
