Santolina chamaecyparissus (Large Plant)

Cotton Lavender

Hardy Shrub

Santolina chamaecyparissus is an eye-catching small shrub, with yellow button flowers sitting atop the silver, ferny foliage in midsummer. The silvery foliage persists all year round, and plants are drought tolerant and will thrive on neglect. Cotton Lavender is a dwarf, evergreen shrub for any part of the garden. An excellent choice for Mediterranean themes, gravel gardens or patio containers. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Culinary note: The fragrant leaves can be used as a condiment to flavour soups and broths. For more details about edible flowers click here.
