Leucophyllum candidum 'Thundercloud' Scophulariaceae Family
A Chihuahuan desert native to dry alkaline
areas so is quite at home in the low desert. It will grow to 3-4'
by the same. Deep purple flowers appear with changes in the
barometric pressure in summer months especially during the monsoon in
the low desert. Foliage is silvery gray. It will perform
best with deep and infrequent irrigations in full sun. It is prone
to rot with too much water too frequently and will suffer as well in
poorly drained soil.
