Eremophila hygrophana Blue Bells

Petite shrubs are always popular, and this little evergreen plant combines stunning purple flowers with silvery foliage. It closely resembles a Texas ranger, but this shrub is native to the deserts of Western Australia. Showy tubular flowers attract hummingbirds to the garden all year in the Tucson area. A full sun exposure and good drainage are preferred. At 17° F, tip damage occurred on test plants, but recovery was rapid in the spring.
