Very pretty small-growing ornamental shrubs and perennial herbs of easy culture and graceful habit, having glaucous and variegated leaves. They are well adapted to planting on the margin of shrubbery groups.

Propagate by cuttings placed in sand in a cold frame early in September; leave them in the frame all Winter and pot them off in Spring in pots of light rich soil; grow them in pots for a year and then plant them in their permanent situations.
