This extremely tough, hardy evergreen shrub is suitable for growing in the most exposed positions near the sea, and is neater and easier to grow than Tamarisk.
It is fast growing, (about 1m/3.3ft a year when fed with a good quality fertiliser like Trevena Cross slow release Fertiliser). It forms an upright growing hedge 3-4.5m/10-15ft tall but can be trimmed down to any reasonable desired height. Its slender leaves make it very wind resistant and in summer it produces pretty small, fragrant, daisy like flowers.
It should be planted in a well-drained soil in an open, sunny position.
