Cultivation and Care of the Santolina Plant:

Santanolina plants need to be planted in very bright and sunny places. They prefer loose, well drained, sandy and possibly calcareous soils; They develop without problems in any soil, since they have very few requirements: they live well even in clayey soils and in arid and lean soils, so much so that if they are planted in a rich substrate, it slows down its growth.In the summer months sporadic watering may be necessary every 10-15 days, for the rest of the year they are generally satisfied with the rains. Being a perennial plant, with the growth it tends to open by highlighting the partially lignified basal branches and losing compactness. After flowering, it is advisable to prune the bush to stimulate the production of basal jets and give it again roundness and fullness.
