Design Ideas: A super shrubby more cold hardy perennial for gardens incorporating Mediterranean style as well as more traditional hardy perennials. A delightful alternative to lavender in cottage gardens or along fence lines of pickets or iron. Shows well in traditional parterres or hedge-bound planters. Casual character is equally suited for wild gardens amidst rocky outcroppings or landscape boulders. Outstanding at edges of dry stream beds with wildflowers. Excellent container specimen in unglazed clay pots.

Easily grown in average to lean, fast-draining soils. Avoid wet, poorly drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize in early spring and prune to within several inches above the ground to promote dense growth and heavy bloom.
