Description

Note there is a limited quantity of these plants. They are in 9 cm pots

This plant, which is now hard to find, is a lovely filler for the garden border, requiring no care at all and rewarding each year with a prolific display of scented white flowers. It is particularly nice near an entrance way where its scent will waft indoors. It grows to about 70cm and forms a rounded clump of attractive soft blue grey felted leaves, from which arise, in the second year of growth, wonderful sprays of scented white flowers in spring and summer. It tolerates a moderate degree of drought and also some cold. Deadhead to maintain flowers and vigour. The plant will last for 3-4 years, before becoming woody, by which time you will need to replace it from the odd plants which have self seeded in your garden.
