(Wilson's Pearlbush)

Pink-tinted new leaves accompany the bright white flower buds and blossoms on the redbud pearlbush towards late spring. From northwestern China, this deciduous shrub has a rounded, spreading mass of branches that can have a slightly arching habit. It naturally grows in rocky soils and scrubland.

As the young pinkish green leaves begin to unfurl in mid-spring, many white flower buds, resembling pearls, appear in short, upright spikes on the twigs. As the leaves enlarge and endure past the flowers,...

(Apache Plume)

The rose-like blooms and ornamental seed heads make this one of the most interesting shrubs of the Southwest United States. Its twiggy, pale-barked stems and downy white branchlets form an upright to spreading shrub that retains a relatively low profile (head-high or less). Small lacy dark green leaves are rather widely spaced on the branches, giving the plant a somewhat scruffy look when it is not in flower or fruit. The leaves are deciduous in areas where cold or drought persist.
