A small to medium hardy shrub with attractive silvery foliage and a nice dense habit which can be improved with an annual pruning.  A very low maintenance and useful plant for landscaping work, and it is reputed to be fire retardant.

Grows well in full sun to light shade in most soil types with good drainage. Frost and drought tolerant and grows particularly well in coastal areas. 

 The dense foliage makes good shelter for small creatures like lizards and smaller birds, as it can be thorny, so it is a great habitat plant. It can also provide food for stock in semi-arid areas.

Germination: Seed - sow spring and only just cover the seed. Germination should take place within a week, prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out after the last expected frosts.
