A midsummer flowering favourite that is, as we head for the shortest day, awash with flower buds and carrying a selection of open flowers. The weekend frost had a culling effect but colour is still evident. A native to Spain where it was collected from a plant growing in limestone rocks in open Pine forest at 1000metres. The leaves are covered in fine hairs which when dry give a silvery appearance to the plant. A woody shrub to one metre in height.
