    green cloud sage

    Green Cloud Sage
    The Green cloud sage (Leucophyllum frutescens)- is a large evergreen, drought tolerant shrub that is well adapted to the Southwest heat. It can grow to about 6-7ft tall and about the same in width. Many southwestern cities use these shrubs as landscape design. They are durable, hardy and easy care plants. The blooms are rich dark purple flowers that usually bloom right around mid July or when the Monsoon season starts. The foliage is a bright green color thus it's name.
