Highlight your plantings in silver with this gorgeous, low-maintenance trailer. First, there are the fuzzy leaves that beg to be touched, just waiting to create almost unlimited texture and color combinations. Sage-green leaf tops reverse to lambs-ear gray, the rounded leaves resembling beech leaves. It sparks amazing contrast with lime, red, black, purple, cream, orange, blue….This one is unfussy and fabulous, maxing out at 12 inches high by 20 inches wide.
Those fuzzy leaves are a giveaway that White Licorice (a Helichrysum petiolare cultivar) is quite xeric, or drought-tolerant, and can make it through the hottest summers. Grown for the knockout foliage alone, it looks great as a trailer in containers, or edging a garden bed or border in a part- to full-sun exposure.
Proven Accents® White Licorice Plant Care
Licorice plants ask very little in the way of care. They need very little fertilizer, perhaps just at planting. Well-drained soil is preferred. They do resent over-watering, so don’t place in a too shady or wet location.
Proven Accents® White Licorice Plant Spacing
Space about 18-20 inches wide, expecting a similar spread in the ground. In containers, allow eight inches.
