This profusely flowering evergreen groundcover or low shrub is native to South America. It is drought and seacoast tolerant, great for slopes where erosion is a concern and soaks up full sun without getting too thirsty. Its strongly scented foliage is small but attractive with oval shaped medium green leaves densely covering the woody stems. The circular heads of the pristine white flowers compliment nearly any color scheme and persist from spring through fall. It makes an excellent groundcover, is great in containers, and trails along the ground covering a 6’ wide swath with a 2’ height. It attracts birds and butterflies but is toxic to deer who know enough to stay away from it. Best suited to Sunset Western Garden zones 8-10 and 12-24, Boething Treeland Farms grows it in one and five-gallon sizes.
