Because of its rhizomatous nature and the fact that it is evergreen, this makes a fine groundcover in dry woodland borders. Its gray green foliage is very distinct, the substantial leaves being dimpled and crimped along their borders with a little white visible from the underleaf in the crimping. The loose racemes of pale flowers seem almost an after-thought. Yet another added feature in favor of Teucrium scorodonia 'Crispum' is that deer seem to ignore it.
