Santolina are useful evergreen shrubs that are tolerant of difficult, somewhat dry, sunny sites. Over the years, we have used their silver or green foliage throughout our low-water borders. Santolina r. 'Lemon Fizz' is different. Its thread-like foliage is yellow in all-day sun or chartreuse in part shade. Because there are very few shrubs with yellow foliage that can be incorporated into low-water borders, it is a welcome addition. Give it good drainage. Be prepared to cut it back part-way at the end of winter, to tidy it up and promote new growth.
