Cushion Bush - Leucophyta brownii- 2.5" Pot - Terrarium/Fairy Garden/House Plant
Gift wrapping Options available
A striking, light reflecting highlight for a well-drained situation, this native of Southern coastal Australia grows fairly quickly into a finely textured rounded mass of silvery-white tangled wiry branchlets and tiny foliage resembling a compact, silvery tumbleweed. Little silvery buds open into small light yellow “buttons” in Spring. Low maintenance, it’s happy in well-drained rock gardens, along pathways, slopes and containers in NUTRIENT POOR SOIL (no clay). To 1-3’ tall. Trim as needed. Hates high humidity. Great for coastal sites as it resists salt spray and wind.
Zone: 9 -11
Proper name: Leucophyta brownii “Cushion Bush” (syn. Calocephalus brownii)
