The Broombush is a very hardy plant, tolerant of salt, moist soils, dry soils, and even cold weather. It’s a great filler plant, mixing well with other salt tolerant plants such as the Sea Oxeye, Goldenrod, Saltgrass, and Horizontal Cocoplum.
Its tiny white/yellow flowers and fruit grow in masses, creating a showy cotton like appearance. This creates great texture to your landscape
The Broombush can grow 4-6 feet in height, making this plant a shrub. Its leaves are a 1-3-inch spatulate to linear in shape with a gray/green hue, and with the addition of its flowering and fruiting style, this makes for an interesting specimen.
