Likes full sun to partial shade. Forms a mound of graceful arching foliage. Greenish white flowers resembling bottlebrushes appear in the summer, persisting into the winter months.  Eventually turns brown and should be cut back in the spring.

Needs a sheltered sunny position and will grow on any soil except a poorly drained one.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
