The leaves of this shrub are covered with fine hairs, giving them a bluish look. With creamy-white flowers, the nodding flowerheads are usually at the end of the stems.


Requires well-drained (but not dry) soils in partial shade. Can become leggy. Tip-pruning in autumn and early winter, especially when young, helps prevent this. Prune off the dead flowerheads after flowering. Do not prune back to leafless wood.
