The Elk Blue California Gray Bush (Leucophyllum candidum 'Elk Blue') is a low-maintenance, evergreen shrub known for its stunning silver foliage and tolerance for drought conditions. This attractive plant is a popular choice for xeriscaping, adding texture and visual interest to water-wise gardens and arid landscapes.
The Elk Blue California Gray Bush is a compact, slow-growing shrub that typically reaches a height and spread of 1-2 feet. It is hardy in USDA zones 8-11 and thrives in full sun and well-drained soils. Its tolerance for drought, heat, and poor soils makes it an ideal choice for xeriscapes, rock gardens, and other low-water environments. The plant's natural, rounded shape and dense branching make it an excellent option for use as a low hedge, border, or accent plant in various landscape designs.
One of the standout features of the Elk Blue California Gray Bush is its striking silver foliage. The plant's small, ovate leaves are densely covered in fine, silvery hairs, giving them a velvety texture and a unique, shimmering appearance. The foliage not only adds a touch of elegance and contrast to the landscape but also serves a practical purpose, reflecting sunlight and helping the plant conserve water in its natural, arid environment.
In addition to its visual appeal, the Elk Blue California Gray Bush's foliage is highly aromatic. When the leaves are crushed or brushed against, they release a pleasant, earthy fragrance that adds another sensory dimension to the garden experience.
