Evergreen subshrub native to the Mediterranean basin, also the Canary Islands, British Isles and Caucasus. Plant prefers part sun to shade and mesic to dry soils. As a landscape accent, these are really excellent, and over here in the new world this plant is considered rare.

Plant prefers shade and fast draining, dryish soils. Space plants 3 feet apart.
