A dense mounded shrub with small leaves and delicate pink curled bottlebrush flowers that are produced sporadically all year. The small leaf makes it useful as a low growing hedge. The leaves are aromatic when crushed. Great for shrubberies or as a pot. A hardy plant for most soil types, likes full sun, can also be grown in dappled shade. Drought and frost tolerant once established. Regular watering will encourage flowering.
