Leucophyllum langtmaniae 'Lynn's Legacy'
This evergreen shrub grows moderately, forming a dense, rounded mound of sage green foliage. Masses of lavender flowers are produced in the summer and fall.
This selection of Texas Rangers was collected by Lynn Lowery, a very special plant man from east Texas. Lynn, who passed away in 1997, is a legend among botanists and plant collectors. Lynn picked out this clone with his usual discerning eye for its profuse and frequent flower displays. Lynn’s Legacy grows moderately to about 5 feet tall and wide, with a dense, rounded form.
Its sage green foliage is a beautiful backdrop for the lavender flowers. This clone is less dependent on relative humidity changes for flowering than other Texas Rangers. For this reason, it blooms more often during summer than other selections and is known as ‘Lynn’s Everblooming’ in Texas.
