Description

Santolina chamaecyparissus is a handsome, evergreen, compact Mediterranean shrub with aromatic greyish-white, finely divided narrow leaves that can be sheared for a formal look as a low border or planted in mass for an attractive silvery ground cover on dry banks, rocky slopes or for edging. Small, bright yellow button-like flowers bloom in summer on 6 inch tall stalks. Gray Lavender Cotton grows well in coastal California gardens with little or no supplemental water and tolerates seaside conditions. Durable and long-lived use for formal or informal borders. Also great in containers. Cutback occasionally after flowering to prevent woody buildup.

Plant care

Plant in loose soils with excellent drainage. Water deeply and regularly to establish roots during the first growing season then reduce frequency. Does not tolerate soggy soil or overwatering. Prune annually after flowering to maintain a tidy, compact appearance.
