A dense groundcover or cascading plant with arching or weeping stems with neatly arranged silver-grey foliage covered in clusters of golden flowers in spring. Small insect-eating birds such as wrens and thornbills will probe amongst the flowers for food. Spectacular as a curtain, cascading from tall timber planter boxes, free-standing pipes, over walls and down banks; can also be planted as a dramatic ground cover.
