  • Description

  • Notes

Evergreen mounding groundcover grows at a slow- to moderate rate to 2' x 3'. The charteuse flowers appear midwinter through spring and add a nice contrast to the blue-green leaves. This plant truly has striking flowers and floliage. Low maintainance. Sap from plant may irrigate skin. Native to the Mediterranean.
Frost tolerant to 15 F.
