Cushion Bush

6 Jun

Cushion Bush (Calocephalus), every-grey, compact and dense growth habit to 2-3 feet in height with equal spread, single button shaped yellow flower blooms at the tip of each stem in summer, small leaves lay flat on the wiry stems, full sun, drought tolerant, good foliage contrast.

Native to Australia, Cushion Bush (also known as Silver Bush) is an unusual looking perennial with silvery-white foliage and tiny light yellow flowers at the ends of each stem. The foliage looks great in flower arrangements! Looks great in a succulent type dry garden with other Australian natives.
