These bushes are also known as chamaebatiaria millefolium and can grow up to eight feet tall! The great feature about this shrub is its tolerance to the weather.

This means you’ll have a gorgeous plant all year long. This is the perfect shrub to plant in areas that receive a majority of sunlight on it. You can even grow this plant in gravel so you may be able to pair it with some of your home’s hardscaping.
