Description :

A Santolina which looks like a blue-green hedgehog. Am I dreaming?

Not a bit of it! Santolina rosmarinifolia, or holy flax, forms a compact, regular cushion which, over the years with careful pruning, can look like a bonsai with a thick, knotty trunk.

Santolina rosmarinifolia grows as a compact shrub with beautiful aromatic, glaucous green foliage. Creamy yellow flowers 1 cm in diameter in June-July.

In the garden, we plant it in a dry rockery, troughs, on walls, in a gravel garden with other 'cactus' like plants: Thymus, Sedum, Ballota, Euphorbia, Sempervivum.. See our range of Perennials for dry, poor soil

Prune to shape after flowering.

Height: 30 cm. Grow in the sun in a well-drained, ordinary, gravelly soil, which can be poor and dry. Avoid heavy frosts. (Hardy to -12 °C.)

Not to be confused with Santolina rosmarinifolia subsp. rosmarinifolia, synonym of Santolina virens, with its bright green foliage!
