Ground Cover
Satureja douglasii is a creeping perennial herb that is so common in the SF Bay Area that was first called Yerba Buena. This easy-care, handsome plant looks great in a rock garden climbing around boulders or spreading out on a declining grade. With delicate, tiny leaves on very slender stems that creep along the ground, it roots itself as it spreads. The leaves and flowers have an amazing mint-like fragrance and are both edible. The leaves also make a great tea. It performs best in a moderately moist woodland setting where summers are cool and there is frequent environmental moisture. Clay soil is not a challenge with this great native plant and it’s deer-resistant.
