Apache plume is an evergreen shrub with tiny leaves, upright branching, white flowers and amazing feather-like seed clusters. This desert native can grow 4-5 ft. tall and as wide, and is best suited to sunny locations and well-draining conditions with low amounts of supplemental water.
Apache plume is often combined with other California natives in desert and sage scrub planting schemes. It fits nicely with palo verde and mesquite trees, desert lavender, desert encelia, chuparosa, desert fairy duster and golden barrel cactus. It provides a long season of landscape interest due to its white flowers and persistent seed clusters.
