Although this is a plant that grows wild in many parts of the mediterranean region (Morocco) and is used for forage, it is also useful as an ornamental plant clipped into tight hedges. It's low water requirements, and resistance to seaside conditions make it very useful for gardening in difficult conditions. Its grey foliage provides a good contrast for other plants.
Used as animal fodder, it is not dangerous, although large amounts of chemical fertilisers may concentrate in the leaves, making it harmful if ingested, in places where is is grown as an ornamental shrub.
