The size of the bushes of the Jacobian seaside depends on the variety. Among plants, there are higher, up to half a meter, cultivars and compact varieties 25-30 cm high.

At the same time, the silver texture does not interfere with evaluating the very beautiful, deeply dissected leaf shape, the emerging streaks, and the "artificial" effect. But the flowering of Jacobi is better not to be allowed: plain-looking yellow baskets only spoil the attractiveness of greenery.

Ashy godson is grown through seedlings. Plants develop very quickly and delight with their decorativeness even under the first snow, because dry crosses look like a silver miracle.
