Gray-leafed shrub growing to 3’ high and spreading by short rhizomes. Our mother plant is now about 5’ wide. Muted gray leaves are elliptic and prominently veined on the undersides. Summer blooming, the flowers are pale lilac with a wide cream streak, extending into the throat. Inflorescence is short with a pea-green calyx covered with oily glands that smell of lemon. Full sun or light shade with well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established, it has performed well in our garden with only occasional summer water. Found natively in rocky, dolomitic soils of the Trasvall. Hardy to 25F. South Africa.
