The Q&A Archives: Finding Leucophyllum compactum

Question: I am looking for the following shrub: "COMPACTA", Leucophyllum frutescens. While this shrub appears to be in the family of the Texas Cloud and the Texas Sage, it is not the plant listed on your website.

This shrub grows slowly to a height of 3-5', is native evergreen with compact dense growth with Orch-pink small flowers and blooms in the summer and fall. The shrub needs full sun. It is simular to the Texas Sage, but a little different.

Can you please help me locate three of this shrub.

Answer: Leucophyllum frutescens 'compactum' is a relatively new dwarf Silverado sage so it is not easy to find! However, I've found two nurseries in California for you. Contact:
Lemuria Nursery, 7820 Serpa Ln., Dixon 95620, phone 707-678-4481; or Worldwide Exotics, 10260 Arnwood Rd., Lakeview Terrace 91342, phone 818-890-2776.

Best wishes with your new shrubs!
