The spectacular silver foliage are complemented by lemon yellow flowers on a mounding small perennial plant. This is an outstanding plant that is salt and wind resistant for coastal areas. Use it to give a lift to any slightly shady parts of the garden where it can be planted at the front of borders or in a sunny rockery. It also makes a lovely potted plant for a sunny courtyard. Trim off the spent flowers at the end of summer.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
