USDA Zone: 6b
Exposure: filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: evenly moist, well drained acidic soils

Comments: Tiny flowers, up to 3/4 of an inch, are narrowly tubular and are held in small trusses of up to 16 which may last a month. Equally small foliage is gray-green, about one-inch long and very narrow. With a twiggy habit one might mistake this plant for rosemary. Native to the higher elevations in Yunnan and Szechwan.
