False Heather, Hawaiian Heather, Mexican Heather


This shrubby, rounded, evergreen perennial has flexible leafy branchlets clothed in small, narrow lance-shaped, fine-textured and glossy green leaves. Tiny lavender flowers have their heaviest bloom in summer, with some flowers almost all year. The versatile small scale of this shrub makes it a perfect choice for filling in around bolder plants.
