This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, poor to moderately fertile
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    When planted in generous drifts, this new form will create a shimmering haze of late colour. Perfect for hot, sun-drenched positions, it will take drought in its stride once established, and its aromatic, silvery foliage and terminal clusters of lavender blue flowers will help create a Mediterranean feel. It practically thrives on neglect and it can also cope with dry, chalky soils and coastal conditions.

  • Garden care: In March cut back to the permanent framework of the shrub. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
