|Subspinosum is a shrubby perennial with ascending, twisted, branching, white-woolly stems. Leaves are diamond, lance shaped or linear with gray-green leaves. Pale pink flowers are produced in loose, terminal racemes. May be cut to within 2 inches of ground level in the spring to maintain compact growth habit. Excellent as a low hedge. Does best in moist, well drained soil and full sun. Makes nice clipped low hedge in herb garden.
