Plant of the Week 11/15/2019
Fourwing sage - Atriplex canescens Zone 4-8
Grayish-green foliage covers heavy random branching to create an unkempt, but beautiful native plant. Flowers in summer. In fall and through winter, seedpods give this shrub its trademark "fourwing" look.
The heavy branching attracts birds to nest in the shrub for protection. Plant in full sun. Can handle most soil types. Can reach 6' tall and 8' wide. Water regularly to establish. An easy-care plant that once established, needs no watering.
