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 rattle-like, heart-shaped inflorescences. On slim swaying stems, the small flowers emerge a sparkling green highlighted with red, and dry to a light straw color. Finely textured medium green blades form dense, long-lived evergreen clumps, and forgivingly put up with wind, drought and salt spray.
