AVAILABLE LATE SUMMER 2021

<i>Bupleurum fruticosum</i>

Imbued with soft soothing hues, a dense, round and shapely hummock hosts narrow, leathery sea green foliage that’s lustrous, oval-shaped and dons gray undersides. Tiny sulphur yellow flowers swirling in neat, airy umbels stage a light-hearted dance upon this medium-sized evergreen shrub for most of the summer and early fall.

Whether positioned as a specimen, massed as a screen or windbreak or utilized as a backdrop for a mixed planting, its quiet, yet handsome persona is sure to please.Though this Mediterranean dweller may need some winter protection, it easily endures tough dry sites and exposed coastal conditions.

Blooms July – October

Size: 6' 0" high x 6' 0" wide.

Zone 6/7.
