Leucophyllum langmaniae 'Rio Bravo'™

 If you prefer a more formal look, you might consider using Rio Bravo™. It is very similar in appearance to Chihuahuan sage, but maintains a tight, rounded form without any pruning. It forms a dense mound to 5 feet tall and wide. Its foliage is a slightly richer green than Chihuahuan sage and Lynn's Legacy', providing a more lush appearance. Although it has the same lavender flowers as Chihuahuan sage, it does not bloom as profusely. Rio Bravo™ looks great in combination with Thunder Cloud™! USDA Zone 8.
