Description
chamaedrys comes from the Greek words chamai meaning 'on the ground' and drys, meaning 'oak', originally used by Theophrastus for a low growing plant with oak-like leaves (Stearn, 1994). Gerard (1633) has 'Tree Germander, Teucrium latifolium, with Broad Leaves' and says it has the same uses as Germander, Teucrium chamaedrys, but less effective and little used. Photographed in the Medicinal Garden of the Royal College of Physicians, London.
