|Description||A dense, mounding, woody shrub with attractive, aromatic, finely textured, silver-gray foliage. Produces small, bright yellow flowers in the summer. Creates a very attractive groundcover or edging for walks and borders. Works well in the foreground of an herb garden. Drought tolerant when established. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Allow soil to dry between waterings.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 1½ ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Ground Cover, Edging|
|Design Ideas||This makes a lovely edging for the herb garden or English-style border. Combine with the all green species into a checkerboard groundcover. A valuable source of solid gray foliage in Mediterranean style planting. It can be sheared for a more formal look, which will also keep the growth more dense.|
|Companion Plants||Thrift (Armeria); Dianthus (Dianthus); Catmint (Nepeta); Carpet Bugle (Ajuga); Creeping Phlox (Phlox)|
|Care||Thrives in average, loose, soils with excellent drainage; avoid overly wet and heavily enriched soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Remove spent flowers for a tidy appearance. Prune to shape in late winter.|
|Lore||In France this plant was known as garde robe, because sprigs were used in closets and trunks to repel moths.|
