A striking new foliage plant that has already started to pull in the awards. Its large, silvery white leaves have a soft, downy texture, which makes it ideal for a sensory garden, but it will also make an eye-catching feature for a border or pot where it will thrive in a hot, sunny spot. It quickly forms a good-sized clump and will become tolerant of drought once established. It also tolerates salt-laden winds, so will also flourish in a coastal setting.
- Garden care: Avoid excessive winter wet and move to a more sheltered spot when temperatures dip below -8 to -10C.
