Teucrium glandulosum is a species of flowering plant in the mint family known by the common names sticky germander[1] and desert germander. It is native to the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, Baja California, Baja California Sur, and San Bernardino County in California.[2][3][4] It grows in rocky desert habitat such as canyons. The plant produces three-lobed leaves on its branching stem. The flowers have purple-streaked white corollas up to 2 centimeters long each with a large lower lobe and smaller lateral lobes. The inside of the flower is very hairy.[5]
