Evergreen capable of growing up to 6 feet tall; prefers partial sun and dry soil. Apache Plume is great erosion control and drought tolerant. Easy to grow; flowers the first year from seed. White delicate flowers bloom from April to August. Apache Plume’s nectar attracts bees and butterflies; important forage for wild animals’ cover and nesting. Silvery puffs of fruit grow from branches surrounded by pink feather-like plumes. Grayish-white branches with dark green and silver foliage. Not very palatable to wildlife, but sometimes grazed when other forages are limited.
