Campylanthus is a small genus with some beautiful, shrubby members. Campylanthus salsaloides var. salsaloides is endemic from the succulent and xerophytic shrub zone on all Canary islands and grows as a medium sized, semi woody shrub with bowing stems densely covered with linear, slightly succulent, glossy leaves and terminal racemes of bright lilac flowers. Easily grown as a pot or container plant in any well drained, rocky soil in full sun throughout the year. Keep plants drier in winter in full sun and at a minimum of some 15°C. If plants are becoming too large, they can be cut back easily in early spring.
Sow small, paperlike seeds on any very well drained, rock-sandy soil. Do not cover seeds with soil and place pots in a sunny spot throughout the year. Keep seedlings only slightly moist from beneath and carefully transplant to larger pots after the second pair of leaves.
