Blue Ranger is the smallest of a group of plants known for their cold tolerance, drought resistance and love for hot, sunny climates. During monsoons, when they’re in full bloom, it’s easy to see why Leucophyllums are popular choices for Southwestern landscapes.
Blue Ranger is no exception, as it goes through several bloom cycles throughout the monsoon season, each one drenching the branches in bluish-purple, bell-shaped flowers. The leaves on this compact, evergreen shrub are light grey and characteristically cupped, each leaf appearing to be lined in silver. Blue Ranger is the best silver-leaved Leucophyllum for our region because it is much less prone to the problematic root rot that plagues the Silver Cloud and Thunder Cloud Rangers.
