Fast-growing semi-evergreen shrub to 6’ tall and wide. This low-maintenance, heat-tolerant variety forms a rounded-mound of silver-tinged, medium-green foliage contrasted with a profusion of showy white flowers that attract butterflies, and appear summer into fall or nearly year-round in mild climates. A popular choice for low desert climates, this durable variety is well-suited as an informal hedge, median planting, or as a background to lower-growing shrubs, annuals and perennials. A light pruning in early-spring will help achieve a more compact, dense-growing specimen. Requires a well-drained soil and is considered drought tolerant once established. Prefers a full sun exposure. Deer resistant.
