Customers ask for small evergreen shrubs that will tolerate hot sun and need little water. Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Nana' matches that description perfectly. The silvery white foliage is aromatic to the touch. In the summer, small button-like flowers persist despite the heat. This is an easy plant to grow as long as you give it adequate drainage. Gardeners often use it as an informal low hedge but it is also ideal for rockeries. Those that are challenged by deer will find that deer have little interest in the strongly scented foliage.

Mid- to late summer.  10-12 in. x 12-15 in.
