Unfashionable plants

Yesterday, I was admiring my most unfashionable plants – cotoneaster (which is easy to buy) and teucrium (which you can’t buy anywhere).

I’ve heard someone say that cotoneaster is a supermarket plant but I think it really looks great at this time of year.  Plus, it’s great for bees in June when there isn’t all that much else flowering.

Teucrium is the sort of thing you always see at stately homes (like Osborne House) but no one bloody sells it.  I may want to move my teucrium to a slightly different spot but am terrified that I will kill it and not be able to get another one.

Teucrium - this plant appears to be irreplaceable
