People delight in this Mediterranean native, and its playfully noisy nature has earned it amusing names like cowquakes, didder and dillies; it earns “Rattlesnake” for the rattlelike, heart-shaped inflorescences. On delicate, swaying stems, the small flowers emerge a shimmery green highlighted with red, and dry to a light straw color.
Medium green, finely textured blades form dense, long-lived evergreen clumps, and forgivingly put up with winds, drought and salt spray.
Size: 2' 0" high x 12" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
