Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Cushion Bush
Distinguishing traits. Native to the coastal cliffs of Australia, this snowy white mounding shrub is grown for its unique, eye-catching foliage. It somewhat resembles underwater coral or even a leafless weed.While the plant itself appears prickly and defensive, cushion bush is actually pretty fuzzy to the touch — the result of small, narrow leaves compressed tightly against its architectural, branching stems.Photograph by Melburnian
Cushion Bush(Calocephalus brownii, syn Leucophyta brownii) Native to AustraliaThe soft foliage of this nearly white shrub may look more like something you’d see growing underwater than next to it. It grows up to 3 feet tall and wide and produces small white flowers in late spring or early summer. In winter the white coloring of the foliage becomes even more pronounced, transforming to an almost electric white. It adds interest to the winter garden, where it can glow in the darker days. Native to the Australian coast, cushion bush prefers full sun and grows best in direct salt exposure. It prefers well-drained soil and does not like to be overwatered or in intense humidity. It’s not very cold hardy and is typically grown in zones 9 to 10. See more on how to grow cushion bush
