Cushion Bush


This rounded, mounding shrub resembles a white tumbleweed with its tiny silvery-white evergreen foliage held tightly against silvery-white wiry stems. Small, button-shaped yellow blooms appear on the ends of stems in spring and summer. The attractive foliage is stunning in mass as a high ground cover.
