Grey Barleria

Notes: The grey barleria has attractive woolly grey foliage and tubular white flowers, and forms a dense, rounded shrub which is fairly fast growing. Plant in good, well-drained soil, adding plenty of compost in light shade under trees, or in an informal border. Looks best in groups of three to five. Water well in summer, but less in winter. Deadhead the bush to keep it neat. Grow from seed. It occurs in the woodland of the Northern Province and Zimbabwe.
