Also known as groundsel tree and sea myrtle, saltbush is a long-lived perennial shrub that likes full sun. It can be used as a screen, hedge or buffer plant. Its profuse flowers resemble tiny, silvery-white to cream paintbrushes which are very popular for fall migrating pollinators to make nectar stops, like the Monarchs.  This is an evergreen in our area and typically blooms in fall. It grows between 7-15' tall and 5-7' wide. The white fruit is showy. Seeds are wind dispersed and also eaten by birds and other wildlife. It has some tolerance to salty wind.  If using as a hedge, trim after fall blooms are completed if you are keeping this plant manicured to allow the blooms for the fall migrators.
