Leucophyllum frutescens 'Convent'
‘Convent’ has the darkest pink flowers of the cold-tolerant, drought-resistant, heat-loving plants known as Texas Rangers. If you’ve ever seen one in full bloom, you have a good idea of why these are some of the most popular plants in Southwestern residential and commercial landscapes.
Though the bell-shaped, fuchsia flowers will appear sporadically from spring through fall, the most stunning floral display is brought on by the high humidity of monsoon season, when ‘Convent’ is ablaze with a truly unique color that sets it apart from other Texas rangers available on the market.
This newer selection requires excellent drainage and stays slightly smaller than the species.
Bloom: Triggered by Rain
Light: Full Sun
Zone: 7, 8, 9
