These are fast growing, medium to large shrubs so we love to plant them in any site that’s looking to have a quickly established landscape!

Green Cloud Sage is one of those Leucophyllum shrubs that loves to grow in places where the heat is high and where there is plenty of sun, in fact, it thrives in those kind of conditions! If you’re looking for an easy to care for shrub, you’ll love Green Cloud as it’s a carefree plant that has low to moderate watering needs once established. They grow best when given some room to grow, so we love to plant them in any drought tolerant landscape where they look especially good when planted in rock gardens or complementing succulents and cactus plants!

Living in a high heat zone does not mean that your landscape has to sacrifice color. The Green Cloud Sage is a favorite selection for those living in arid and bare landscapes, and it also works well in milder climates too!
