Design IdeasA superior plant for hot, dry slopes and banks. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates where it is likely to naturalize. Exceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. With similar requirements as western natives, it is suitable for xeriscape or wild gardens in dry climates. Suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs. Performs in large artistic pots and particularly beautiful in classical style with antique finish. An indispensable component of herb gardens.
