Positive hanna1 On Dec 16, 2005, hanna1 from Castro Valley, CA (Zone 9a) wrote:

Perennial shrub grows densely to a height of 2'-3' in conditions where it receives 4-6 hours of sunlight a day. Can tolerae some shade. Blooms almost continuously in buff, turning to mauve. Leaves are edged with white and are stunning in contrast to other perennials.

Neutral Baa On Feb 1, 2003, Baa wrote:

Quite simply a cultivar of E. linifolium with white and grey green leaf variegation.

Loves a well drained, poorish, neutral to alkaline soil in sun or light shade.

Brightens up a dull day in winter.

Won't come true from seed.
