Silver Bush is a low-growing, compact shrub with silky, silver leaves that have an iridescent sheen. White, tubular, morning glory-like flowers emerge from pink buds during spring and early summer, adding further interest to this charming little plant.

It enjoys a well-drained position, preferably in poor, alkaline (sweet or chalky) soil. It reaches a height of approximately 60cm and a mature width of 90cm, growing best in cooler climatic conditions.
