With a name as intriguing as the plant is attractive, this low-growing mounding shrub resembles the hairy but loveable beast from the “Addam’s Family” television series. Weeping glossy green narrow leaves form a tidy clump and are wonderful masses along a border or foundation or in containers. Its low water needs (expected with an Australian native) and desire for full or partial sun recommend it for California’s coastal and inland climates. Western Garden Sunset zones 16-24 are its ideal habitat. Deer-resistant and happy by the coast, it can also tolerate shade when necessary. Its maximum size is 36” x 36” so it suits compact gardens well
