2009 Plant Select Winner
10" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). Native to high, dry areas of Turkey, this is sure to become a very popular addition to the Western xeric garden. The soft felted leaves are green on top and edged in white with the backs of the leaves also wooly white. The flowers are insignificant and should be sheared off to expose the evergreen, ornamental foliage. A vigorous grower, this plant does well in lean, well-drained soils, requiring little water once established. NOT RECOMMENDED for planting in regions with HOT, HUMID summer weather; the wooly foliage will "melt" from the humidity. A fine groundcover for underplanting Caryopteris 'First Choice' (where it will accentuate the gray-green foliage) and blue or gray leafed grasses and perennials, to add contrasting texture and color. Can tolerate occasional foot traffic.
Flat of 32 plants will cover 48 square feet when planted together
