Santolina chamaecyparissus is a small subshrub, native to the Mediterranean basin, with a well-branched habit. Often found in the garden, it is well-loved for its silvery foliage which is easily pruned and its tolerance of hot, dry situations.

There are several uses for it in the garden: in a rockery or on stonework, in pots, in a border or as a low hedge.

Its evergreen foliage can be regularly pruned into a rounded shape which can be useful to give structure to a bed, to create a rhythm, mark an angle or to provide contrast with single flowers (e.g. the slender spikes of Perovskia or the colourful blooms of tulips in the spring).

The Santolina chamaecyparissus var. lindavica variety has grey-green foliage with globular, cream yellow blooms. Height: 30 to -40 cm. Spread: 50 to -60 cm. (Apparently introduced in the catalogue of ornamental plants around 1917).

Grow in full sun in a warm exposure in ordinary, slightly acidic to alkaline soil, which can be poor and dry.

Maintenance is simply two pruning sessions:

  • The first time, depending on the gardener's taste, should be before or just after flowering. This is a light touch prune to maintain the plant's rounded shape.
  • The second prune is harsher and should be performed in late winter when the plant can be reduced by 30% without, however, touching the woody base structure.
