Plush, silver, heavily textured leaves make a trim mound through the summer months. Very easy and adaptable in a variety of sites and soils. Excellent as an accent or massed, in containers, in annual plantings or borders. Annual. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Used primarily for its foliage - deadhead if desired. Not winter hardy so it's best to start with a new plant each spring. Harden off before planting outside.
