Essential Facts

Notes & Use

What Stillpoint "Nose"

Also known as cotton lavender or grey santolina.


Santolina is a genus of plants in the family Asteraceae, which also includes sunflowers, daisies, and asters. There are several species within this genus, with the most well-known perhaps being Santolina chamaecyparissus, also called cotton lavender or gray santolina.

Santolina species are native to the Mediterranean region and have adapted to thrive in dry, sunny, and well-drained conditions, making them excellent choices for rock gardens, borders, and areas with poor, sandy, or rocky soil.
Botanically, Santolina plants are characterized by their small size (usually not more than 2 feet or 60 cm tall) and mound-like growth habit. They have finely divided, silvery-gray to green leaves that give the plant a somewhat feathery appearance.
The flowers are typically yellow, button-like, and appear in clusters. Depending on the species and growing conditions, they usually bloom in the summer. Interestingly, the flowers are not the main attraction of these plants, but rather their foliage, which is valued for its texture and color.
Santolina plants have a strong aroma, which some people find pleasant and others do not. The smell has been described as similar to camphor or rosemary and is most noticeable when the leaves are crushed.
In terms of propagation, Santolina can be grown from seeds or cuttings. They're generally easy to care for and are resistant to most pests and diseases. However, they do not tolerate wet, poorly drained soils and can suffer in cold, wet winters.
