Comments: This is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub which makes a nice ornamental in the garden because of its dark green foliage with silvery-gray coloring beneath. Once established it is quite drought tolerant. Excellent shrub for hedges and is salt tolerant. Provide a well-drained soil. This selection does not flower and produce fruit.
