Santolina chamaecyparissus

Santolina chamaecyparissus

Common name lavender cotton
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-9)
Flowers yellow (summer)
Size 12-24"
Light sun
Cultural notes well drained soil

Evergreen perennial with fragrant gray-green leaves and a shrubby growth habit. We grew this early on in our Pennsylvania garden (before I started this website), lost it (probably to a cold and wet winter), and somehow never returned to growing it until picking up a plant for our Houston garden. We are now at the opposite end of its hardiness zone range, where heat is more of a concern than cold – although wet winters may be problematic regardless.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: left fence border
