A lovely low mounding shrub with small mid-green leaves and masses of white tubular flowers all year round, which looks good with minimal work. A great feature plant for rockeries, borders or pots. Attracts butterflies. Best in well drained soil and a sunny spot. Feed with a good native fertilizer in spring, watering in afterwards to avoid leaf or root burning.
