This captivating evergreen plant has silvery/grey foliage, which adds interest to the winter garden and flags up its tolerance of heat in the summer. In the very early spring, delicate pink buds emerge, opening into classic, convolvulus-shaped, funnel flowers with a yellow eye. These are nectar rich so attract early pollinating insects. A recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence in the garden.


Roughly translated from the Greek, ‘cneorum’ means olive-like and the lovely silvery leaves of this compact Mediterranean plant justify this name and explain its tolerance of heat and dryness.
