Description

Height x Spread: 60cm x 60cm

Low-growing mounds of tactile grey-green heart shaped foliage on woolly white stems, which produce small pink flowers in their leaf joints in mid summer.

This dwarf evergreen subshrub only needs a trim to 2.5cm above the previous year's growth, in spring after frosts have finished, to keep its tidy shape. This 'go to' foliage plant thrives in poor, well-drained soil or can be easily grown in a container. It likes to be sited in full sun and dislikes cold, wet winters.
