Description: Cistus Nursery has described this plant as a compact and fine textured, upright little evergreen shrub, growing slowly to 3-4' tall, with narrow, rosemary-like leaves of green dusted gray. In spring, unrosemary-like clusters of small but fragrant, creamy white flowers appear at the branch tips. Plants make very good, small scale, garden furniture or a slightly formal hedge in places where rosemary doesn't thrive. Enjoys full sun to medium shade, decent drainage, and summer water. Frost hardy to -12 °F, or so, upper zone 5.
