Santolina (Santolina chamaecyparissus tomentosa), packet of 30 seeds


Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 6 to 9

(Lavender Cotton) Evergreen rounded bush to 24 inches tall, with silvery-grey foliage giving rise to bright yellow flowers, native to the Mediterranean basin.   These are tough as well as pretty.  The deeply-divided foliage lends a soft appearance to otherwise stark landscape.  Traditonal usage (TWM): antiparasitic, stomachic.  Plant prefers very fast-draining, alkaline soils and full sun, being perfectly drought-tolerant.   Sow seed in sand or fast-draining mix, tamp securely and keep evenly moist and in the light until germination, which is rapid.  Work up in pots.  Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart.

30 seeds per packet, Open-pollinated, untreated NO GMOs
