About This Plant

Sun. Evergreen, with striking moon-white foliage and deep purple flowers. A somewhat smaller, rangier, more delicate xeric relative of our native cenizo; it makes a nice (and extremely fragrant) accent in cenizo groupings. Give it some room, or else it may be easily crowded out by larger plants.

Maintenance

Occasional grooming and shaping, generally not needed much more than once per year.
