Description:

Santolina chamaecyparissus, also known as cotton lavender or lavender cotton, is a small, evergreen shrub characterized by its silver-grey foliage and small, button-like yellow flowers. It is prized for its aromatic foliage and ornamental value in garden borders, rock gardens, and Mediterranean-style landscapes.

Origin:

Santolina chamaecyparissus is native to the Mediterranean region, where it grows in dry, rocky habitats with well-drained soil. It has been cultivated for centuries for its medicinal properties, as well as for its use in traditional herbal remedies and ornamental gardening.

History:

Throughout history, Santolina chamaecyparissus has been valued for its medicinal properties and aromatic qualities. It has been used in traditional medicine to treat various ailments, including digestive issues and skin conditions. In gardening, it has been prized for its ability to thrive in poor, dry soil and its attractive appearance in landscape design.

Watering:

Santolina chamaecyparissus is drought-tolerant once established and prefers dry, well-drained soil. It should be watered sparingly, especially during hot, dry periods, to avoid waterlogging the roots. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other problems, so it's important to allow the soil to dry out between waterings.

Pruning:

Pruning Santolina chamaecyparissus helps maintain its compact, bushy form and encourages new growth and flowering. It can be lightly pruned after flowering to remove dead or diseased foliage and shape the plant as desired.

Care:

Santolina chamaecyparissus is relatively low-maintenance and requires little care once established. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil and is tolerant of poor, sandy, or rocky soil conditions. It can benefit from occasional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and flowering.
