Satolina chamaecyparissus Lavender Cotton Zone 7-9
Finely textured gray-green foliage provides a beautiful backdrop for highlighter yellow blooms that appear in the summer. Plant in full sun. Moderate grower that reaches 18" tall and 3' wide.
Remove spent blooms for a cleaner look. Shape the plant during late winter for a neater growth pattern the following year. Strong smelling evergreen. Looks great in rock gardens and near flagstone pathways.
