Silverheels horehound is a vigorous mat-forming, xeric groundcover that thrives in many sites and soils. Bright silver lining shimmers on the fringes of rounded foliage. Marrubium is a native plant from Turkey, and a member of the mint family. The foliage is wooly and soft to the touch. This plant makes for some great combination plantings with dry land shrubs and bulbs. One of the most stunning combinations for a contrast in feel and appearance is to have it grow as a “skirt” underneath or around blue or gray leafed grasses and perennials. This evergreen plant makes a remarkable difference to the winter landscape with its blanket of growth. It is a great solution to those dry and neglected portions of the garden as well as a centerpiece when planted in even the choicest locations in the garden.

It is recommended to shear off the insignificant white flowers to expose the evergreen foliage.
