Sorry, no etymologies found.
They are subshrubs or herbaceous, and have slender trailing stems 1-2 m long but not growing more than 20-70 cm above ground; the stems frequently take root where they touch the ground, enabling the plant to spread widely.
Dry grasslands are characterized by several macro-herbaceous species from the genus Stipa, Lygeum spartum, and subshrubs such as Artemisia herba-alba.
Both could make a feature plant in a sunny border with other Mediterranean silver-leaved subshrubs with contrasting flowers.
