Details

48" tall x 48" wide, (seed propagated). This is one of the showiest of our native shrubs. Everblooming with white, five-petaled flowers, Apache Plume really stands out when the pink, silky plumed seed heads are formed and cover the tips of the branches for many months. Striking when underplanted with low growing ground cover junipers. A moderate to rapid grower in any well-drained soil.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Fallugia paradoxa:

    One of my beds is full sun, with "quick draining" = gravel soil. I have tried many different varieties of plants, and this one is a survivor! It made it through a long, hot, summer with only a few bucketfuls of water, and bloomed continuously. A very pretty addition. I'm thrilled with this one!

      I live in Eastern Oregon and planted this during one of our hottest summers on record in the hottest part of my yard. It performed perfectly and I'm looking forward to it sizing up in the coming years.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
