I really like this plant. It forms a good, dense, low growing, light silver ground cover. It blooms in winter and looks good all season. It needs good drainage and will grow in a hot dry place without suffering in drought or intense heat without watering. The foliage smells like crayolas. Trimming it back some in late winter before new growth starts makes for a neater appearance if it gets ratty and tangled looking.
