Description There is much to recommend about this very rare species of native shrub. One of its most favorable attributes is its heat and drought tolerance, once it established. It is course by nature but makes up for this with its deep green foliage covered on the undersides with silver whitish scale. In the fall, the older leaves turn a vibrant pumpkin orange. All the foliage hangs loosely down during the winter and flutters in the wind showing the deep green, vibrant pumpkin orange and the silvery undersides of both old and current years leaves. Grow to 6'x6' and does appreciate an annual lime application in acid soils.
