Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Small Ness'

Very cool plant, like its shocking yellow cousin 'Lemon Fizz', but a bit more refined.  Has a very diminuative habit - slow growing with tightly held small foliage.  Gray-green leaves are long with finely cut margins for a filagree effect.  Has an upright bushy habit and can pruned as needed.  Use like a bush or small tree in miniature landscape plantings.  Needs well-drained soil and loves the sun and heat.  Drought tolerant once established. Has a spicy scent when touched/trimmed.  Not recommended for indoor gardens or terrariums.  Grows to about 3-4" x 3-4".  A nice foundation plant for a fairy house and appropriate for formal garden designs as well.  Hardy to zone 6/7 - 9.
