There has been little use for santolina as a herb, although its use in expelling worms has been recorded. It seems the decorative properties of this stunning golden leaved variety are enough.

This stunning herb loves sun and a well-drained soil. It isn't always reliable in winter if growing in a cold area, but as it makes such a striking container herb it can be moved to a more sheltered position come winter. Mine has been growing happily in a terracotta pot next to the fence which gives it a bit of shelter for over five years now. After flowering cut back by fifty percent to keep a nice compact shape.
