Top Plants For Sonoma County
Fast growing but short-lived. Trim after flowering, cut back in spring.
When cultivars of this sub-shrub are grown as foliage plants for either pale gray or bright green color, gardeners often remove the yellow button-like blossoms. They rarely appear, however, when plants are regularly sheared as a soft, low hedge or into rounded shapes. Left untrimmed, shrubby mounds tend to flop over. Renew by pruning hard every year or two. Pungent foliage has sage-like scent.
