The soft, silvery foliage is irresistible to touch and feel and in this cultivar, it has a very distinct and beautiful coppery-coloured tinge on the ends of the branches. It forms a beautiful upright shrub that makes an excellent feature or pot plant for gardens in areas of lower humidity in southern Australia.
