Leucophyllum frutescens, Texas Sage


The silvery foliage of this drought tolerant shrub makes a stunning accent.

Native to Texas and northern Mexico, it is adapted to desert conditions and grows best in full sun.

It is slow growing and will reach a size from 3 to 8 feet around.

It has lavender flowers that are usually produced when the rainy season begins.

Consider planting Leucophyllum instead of Ligustrum or Nandina.
