This is really cute, but completely unknown outside of its native Texas. In reality, you probably wouldn't recognize it if you saw it, as it looks more like a cross between a buddleia and a lamb's ear. B. marrubiifolia makes a compact bush to 4' with small, round, felty, silver dollar-sized leaves. From late spring through the summer, the tips of each branch are home to marble-sized fuzzy orange balls... yes, these are the flowers. B. marrubiifolia is native to limestone slopes, so good drainage is essential. Our selection B. 'Presidio' was made by the late Logan Calhoun of Texas for better hardiness.
