Atriplex lentiformis

Brewer's Quailbush

Lovely silvery white holly-leaved foliage year round. Excellent wildlife food. Can be kept to a tidy 5 ft tall and wide, or in hot sunny moderately-watered conditions, can be 8-foot tall & 25 foot wide. This is a very under-utilized plant that is native to the Bay Area. Easy with sun in harsh soils & poor drainage.
