The Grey Spider Flower is a short sized shrub of rounded shape. Once established, it withstands long dry periods and is tolerant of moderate frost. It thrives in full sunlight and does well also in semi-shaded situations. It requires well drained soils. The flowers appear in late Winter and Spring. Two cultivars of this species have also been created for home gardens.
