Strong, but elegant existence in the landscape. Due to its fine leaves any brown leaf tips become almost vague at a distance so that a fresh appearance is maintained year around. New growth is blue, maturing too green with age. Its flowers are positioned deep in the foliage making its well suited to high pedestrian areas as there is little danger from getting spiked by drying flowers. Reaches a height of 70cm and 1m in width. Likes sunny/partly shaded positions, free draining soil and handles very dry condition quite well.
