Santolina has a strong scent when leaves are handled. It is not unpleasant, rather like the scents one might find in a Christmas shop. I have had them last for over three years here in Maryland, but an unusually cold winter will kill them. It appears to respond well t trimming if necessary. It appears to be a slow grower.
