Cushion bush is a great tough shrub for difficult areas, which brings interest to the garden with its textural growth habit. It has silvery grey stems with tiny leaves, and round umbels of silver to pale gold flowers in summer. Great for coastal sites, as it resist wind and salt spray beautifully. Good in most soils, and likes a sunny spot. A terrific low maintenance plant, drought resistant. Can be pruned to shape if desired, but it naturally grows in a neat bun shaped plant.
