Common Name:-SPOTTED GAYFEATHER / Type:-SHRUB / Light:-FULL SUN / Water:-LITTLE TO NONE / Color:-BLUE / Bloom Time:-SUMMER / Height-36" / Width:-30” / Comments:-A more cold tolerant than Leucophyllum frutescens- it has smaller leaves, but a nice grey appearance in the garden. It retains gray color through winter. The Leucophyllums are known as Barometer Plants. They have bright purple blooms with rain in summer. / Garden Notes:-Big Bend Silverleaf is a nice compact shrub so it will fit nicely in a more modest sized garden. Do not fertilize excessively or water much. Too much water in our clay soils may be lethal.
