Plant Summary

The canescent selago, Selago canescens, is a striking evergreen shrub that produces masses of small, tubular purple flowers in early spring. These flowers attract butterflies, especially the Ant Blues, which have a fascinating symbiotic relationship with ants. It is endemic to the fynbos region of South Africa, where it grows on dry, clay slopes. It is easy to grow in full sun and well-drained soil and can be propagated from seed or cuttings. Selago canescens is a great choice for adding colour and wildlife to your garden.
