    This sun-loving evergreen originates from dry, rocky areas throughout the south of Spain and Portugal. This makes it ideal for Mediterranean-style planting schemes - as well as potting up on a sunny terrace. In late spring and early summer, the grey-green leaves are topped with clusters of yellow flowers, which may (or may not!) have a dark reddish brown mark at their base.

  • Garden care: After flowering, pinch back the young plant to encourage a bushy habit. Lightly trim or cut back any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant. This plant should never be pruned hard. Avoid transplanting or root disturbance once established.
