An evergreen shrub growing
slowly to 12'.
The leaves are leathery, spoon shaped, light green and
look somewhat like mistletoe.
The few flowers produced from April through November are
not showy. Considered quite tolerant of salty and brackish
soils. As it is also capable of growing in heavy poorly drained
soil it is perhaps a better choice than jojoba in garden
cultivation. Native to the Texas Gulf coast and those of Baja.
Useful as a screen or hedge, it will grow in full sun to
part shade. Hardy
to 18° F. USDA
