Plant Highlights

this tough, drought tolerant evergreen shrub reaches 4 feet tall and wide. The color of this plant is a very beautiful bluish-grey. The foliage color and somewhat fern-like appearance makes this a great choice for a hot inland landscaping situation. It is a very important wildlife plant. Native to dry areas of the western US. It needs full sun, is very drought tolerant, and needs good drainage. Its seeds are edible. Chewed leaves are said to aid digestion (each to their own). It is nitrogen fixing.
