A medium sized 2-4 high x 2-4 wide and hardy shrub that bears a profusion of flowers from Winter to Spring. The spidery flowers attract honey eating birds. Named for the foliage that bears a resemblance to the grey green leaves of an olive tree. A good plant for hedges, screening and coastal areas. Grows best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. Likes good drainage, tolerant of long dry spells and some frost. Prune to encourage a more dense habit. Prune after flowering.
