Features

notes
Santolina chamaecypanssus Pretty Caroll is a mouthful, but the herbaceous perennial is well worth it and the super-long word, which roughly translates ‘like ground cypress’, is a valid description of the grey/green foliage. In the height of summer, delightful canary yellow pom-pom flowers rise to the surface of the aromatic foliage on fine stalks to great effect.
Insights

Indigenous to western and central Mediterranean areas, this fragrant perennial with its cheering button-like flowers is drought tolerant once it is established. Stunning on the edge of borders or for planting in dry stone walls; it is also highly attractive in zinc containers and hugely attractive to native pollinators.
