Feather Bush is an Arizona native with a delicate appearance that grows into a large, graceful shrub or a small tree with a picturesque silhouette. In Tucson, winter temperatures can drop below 20o F, nipping the exterior branches of unprotected specimens to naturally maintain a lush, multi-branching shrub. Feather Bush casts light, filtered shade with long, ferny leaves that resemble giant green feathers. Its flowers are creamy white puffballs that appear in spring, to the delight of local butterflies. Group this drought tolerant plant in an informal hedge to create an airy, tropical effect, or try it as a garden specimen near patios or entryways, for its soft texture and structural interest.
