Product Description

Santolina 'Lemon Fizz' is a compact evergreen shrub which forms a neat mound of golden-yellow, finely dissected, needle-like leaves highlighted with bright lemon button-like flowers in summer.

Manly grown for its dazzling leaves, 'Lemon Fizz' is an ideal gap-filler for a summer border and is guaranteed to brighten any dull spot in the garden and will jazz up any rock garden, container or small bed.

Native of Mediterranean climates, Santolina is drought-tolerant when established so is perfect for gravel gardens and looks stunning in a pot on the patio or balcony - in fact it can be treated much the same as the more familiar lavender.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as 3 plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting out, grow in any light well-drained soil in a sunny position and you'll be rewarded with clumps of striking foliage with a chamomile-like scent.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Santolina naturally repels insects, and is particularly effective if you prepare small bouquets, dry them, and then store them with your clothes to protect them from moths.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Santolina 'Lemon Fizz':

  • Plant in any well drained garden soil, in full sun as plants dislike cold, winter wet.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure and grit to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Dig a planting hole and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for Santolina:

  • Drought tolerant once established, keep plants well-watered in their first year.

 

Pruning Advice for Santolina:

  • Remove flowers when they have faded along with any straggly shoots in the autumn. In early spring cut back the flowered shoots to within 2.5 cm of the old growth.
