Brachyglottis greyi - Cultivation Notes

This silver leaved sub shrub is both hardy and tolerant of most well drained soils, preferring a hot dry position in full sun where it can be left to form a reliable no-nosense ground cover in the toughest of spots. It should be trimmed back to shape after flowering to retain shape but other than that should look after itself - just avoid shade and wet soils.
