This low-growing native shrub is an excellent choice for compact spaces in the desert- friendly garden. The texture of its soft fern-like leaves contrasts well against desert accent plants. Dark green leaves are covered with an abundance of small purple flowers in late summer through early fall.  A native to the Chihuahuan desert, it is much beloved by native pollinators. Minimum maintenance is required — just an occasional trim at the edges if it starts to get leggy. Plant in well-drained areas and avoid overwatering.
