Satureja douglasii, commonly knows as Yerba Buena, is a low creeping California native ground cover. The leaves are a medium green small spade or scallop shape and smell quite pleasant. They also make a wonderfull tea! Satureja douglasii does best in shade with some ground moisture. Although rhizomes will aid in spreading and may reach to about 4 or 5 feet, it's not considered aggressive. Satureja douglasii can tolerate drought, shade, deer, and some clay in the soil. A dainty white flower will appear in Spring through Fall. Use Yerba Buena in hanging pots where it's foliage may spill over the side for a whimsical look. USDA Zones 7-10.
