Leucophyllum laevigatum

Chihuahuan-Sage, Leucophyllum laevigatum is a low-maintenance evergreen shrub with a spiky, but loose form. The periodic masses of lavender flowers are not only fragrant but will attract hummingbirds, too. During the summer blooming season, the shrub looks like a big bouquet of pale bluish-lavender spikes. Chihuahuan-sage doesn’t seem as dependent on humidity and warmth to blossom as the other Leucophyllum species. A thorough watering can prompt blooming.

Full sun or light shade is acceptable to Chihuahuan-sage. It is drought tolerant once established; supplemental irrigation once or twice a month through the hottest months will maintain a moderate growth rate and attractive appearance. Pruning is unnecessary, as Chihuahuan-sage naturally takes on a uniform, rounded shape.

Chihuahuan sage is an excellent alternative to Leucophyllum frutescens var. green cloud with a slightly different flower color and a more open growth habit.
