Atriplex lentiformis breweri
Quail Bush, Brewer Saltbush
Unusually tolerant of direct seashore conditions and highly alkaline desert soils, saltbushes are grown for their gray or silvery foliage. Flowers and seeds attract birds. Need good drainage. Often become straggly with age; to keep them compact, cut back previous year’s growth by one-third each year before the first flush of spring growth. Plants are fire resistant.Atriplex lentiformis breweri
