Leucophyta brownii ‘Moonshine’ – Cushion Bush

The spectacular silver foliage are complemented by lemon yellow flowers on a mounding small perennial plant. This is an outstanding plant that is salt and wind resistant for coastal areas. Use it to give a lift to any slightly shady parts of the garden where it can be planted at the front of borders or in a sunny rockery. It also makes a lovely potted plant for a sunny courtyard. Trim off the spent flowers at the end of summer.
