New! This is a shrubby ornamental that bloom in wintertime with snow-white blossoms on long upright panicles creating a beautiful wispy mist. It is semi-deciduous, depending on the climate, in winter when flowering occurs. The thick light green velvety leaves have a scalloped edge and are very aromatic and medicinal. Grows 8 to 9 feet in height. Give it a frost-free position in well-drained soil in sun or partial shade, mulch well, and give regular summer watering, drier in winter. It respond well to pruning and can be cut back after flowering. Also, makes an excellent container plant, blooming at a young age. Native to eastern South Africa and eastern tropical Africa where it is common in damp places, often beside streams. USDA zones 9B - 11.
