Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Pretty Carol'

Plant details

Santolina chamaecyparissus or cotton lavender is a Mediterranean shrub that makes a neat, rounded bush, with finely divided foliage. It enjoys warm sunny positions, and good drainage is essential. In colder areas, it will need protection in winter. It is worth taking a few cuttings in late summer to overwinter indoors as an insurance policy. Santolina chamaecyparissus ‘Pretty Carol’ is a small cultivar, with soft foliage.
