Design IdeasExceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. A superior plant for dryish slopes and banks. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates and natural rocky outcroppings where it is likely to naturalize. 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.
