A rare & fabulous contrasting highlight for the dry garden! And a nice & compact form too! Stunning golden fuzz covers the linear olive leaves especially from Spring-Fall providing wonderful color for a well-drained bed. Heat & drought tolerant, it’s pretty cold hardy too- down to 0-5 degrees F. Easy & fast growing to a compact shrub that’s about 3’ tall & 3.5’ across. During Winter the leaves become larger & greener before the dry season’s golden fuzz appears. Occasional water & an annual bit of compost for best show. Golden yellow flowers.
