A beautiful shrub with silvery silky leaves and small pink flowers in winter. This shrub has a naturally rounded shape and grows to a height of about 1m. It is great for Mediterranean gardens, where the silvery leaves provide a contrast to other plants, and the scented flowers provide colour in the winter.
The African Satin Bush likes a sunny spot in well drained composted acidic sandy soil. It does not do well in alkaline soils. Keep well watered, as it grows naturally in damp spots in the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa. Grow in warm gardens and protect against frost.
