Leucophyllum frutescens 'Compacta'

Senisa, or Cenizo, is a Texas native shrub that tolerates just about any type or condition of soil as long as excellent drainage is provided; tolerates heat, drought, and salt spray very well.

The semi-loose round growth habit can be amended with regular pruning, encouraging a tighter and more uniform growth habit. The silver foliage is moderately pubescent, no more than one inch in length. Purple-pink tubular flowers appear throughout the growing season, primarily after a healthy rain.

Senisa is a superior choice for xeriscaping, but can fit easily into any greenscape. No serious pest or disease issues.
