False Heather 'White Whispers'


This shrubby rounded evergreen perennial has flexible leafy branchlets clothed in small, narrow lance-shaped mid to dark green leaves, fine-textured and glossy. 'White Whispers' is a popular selection offering the same sturdy form and character of the species but with an abundance of white flowers throughout the summer and fall. The versatile small scale of this shrub makes it a perfect choice for filling in around bolder plants.
