Silver Germander Question

alameda/zone 8October 30, 2011

I have just purchased this plant. I have a smaller leafed green germander that has tolerated all day sun well - not a fast grower but steady and healthy. Has anyone grown the silver leafed variety? If so, does it like the same conditions as the green? Is it invasive and spread or does it grow where planted? Any information would be appreciated - thanks!

I have only grown the silver variety, so I can't compare the two. I bought a quart sized plant and it is in a fairly shady spot between two houses and up against the fence. It gets some morning and noon sun and that is it. It has gotten pretty tall - about 3' and a bit leggy. I'm going to prune it hard this winter to see if it will bush out more next year. Right now it has a graceful fan shape to it. I don't see it spreading.
