Leucophyta brownii

Cushion Bush

Leucophyta brownii

Leucophyta brownii is an interesting groundcover for a sunny position. Its has an unusual leaf shape that forms into a compact rounded shape which is perfect for pots and although it is slow growing would make a terrific low growing hedge.

The grey colour of the foliage is what makes this plant special as there are not too many grey groundcovers around. Once the plant is established is requires little water, but must be protected from frost in winter. Grows to ±1m x 50cm.
