A dense mounded shrub with small leaves and purple bottlebrush flowers that are produced sporadically all year. The small leaf makes it useful as a low growing hedge. Great for shrubberies or as a pot. A charming, low maintenance plant that tolerates some frost and drought. Attracts nectar loving insects and birds. The foliage has a spicy fragrance when crushed. There are white and pink forms, as well as the usual purple-mauve flowers.
