Genus with over 15 evergreen, branching, wiry-stemmed shrubs typically grown for their heather-like appearance and profuse flowers. They are densely covered in small, thin, needle-like, light green leaves and their flowers are small, greeny-yellow or white and packed into larger spherical clusters. Stamens are longer than the petals, so flowerheads appear studded.
