  • Compact form with erect, upright habit.
  • Ornamental, silvery foliage year round.
  • Clear sky blue flowers from autumn through to late spring.
  • Very hardy and dry tolerant shrub once established.
  • Responds well to clipping for hedging.

Cultural Care

Prefers a full sun location in most soil types given good drainage. Withstands dry conditions well once established but should be watered deeply occasionally during extended periods of heat. A hard prune after flowering will encourage a dense habit. If hedging, lighter but more frequent prunes to shape is required. An application of a slow release fertiliser after flowering is recommended.
