|General Product information||
Shear back and remove only 1/3 of the plant in spring to rejuvenate new growth. The foliage will take on a silver-grey appearance throughout the winter season, but will remain evergreen even in the harshiest winters. It will become woody and you may need to remove some dead wood in early spring. Reframe from dividing this woody perennial though. This plant will even benefit from a gravel mulch as it prefers a dry, well-draining soil bed as opposed to an overly moist one.
