|These drought-tolerant, Mediterranean natives have dense clusters of small, fragrant, white or red flowers. The late-summer bloomers grow in the poorest of well-drained soils, but dislike damp shade. Excellent cut flowers. Can be invasive as it self-sows readily, so pull new seedlings in beds and borders. Best on dry slopes, banks or walls where it can naturalize. Start by seed or division in spring. Remove stems once they have flowered to prolong bloom.
This white-flowering type naturalizes easily, especially in poor, alkaline or chalky soils and along walls and paving.
