Perfect Plant Choice for Narrow Areas


Botanical Name:  Eremophila Hygrophana  

Common Name:  Blue Bells® Emu Bush

A relatively new introduction, compact growing ‘Blue Bells’ Emu bush looks very similar to Texas Rangers but is from an entirely different plant genus and is much smaller, making it a wonderful choice for narrow planting areas. Blue Bells Emu is evergreen and has attractive lavender-blue flowers with frosty gray foliage.  The showy tubular flowers attract hummingbirds to the garden all year in the Phoenix area.  This is a low water use plant that prefers well drained soil.
