Leucophyllum frutescens 'Greencloud'

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 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. 'Greencloud' has a slightly faster growth habit over Compact Senisa, and the foliage is grayish-green. 

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