Attractive dense shrub to 2m x 1.5m with thick foliage, green on top and covered in white and rust coloured hairs underneath. Younger stems and branches are also attractively hairy and rust coloured. Clusters of greenish brown flowers between October and November. Likes full sun in well drained soils. Occurs naturally in coastal dunes making it a very tough and drought hardy plant. This plant makes a lovely back drop foliage shrub.
