AA medium-sized shrub, the Leucophilus has green foliage and pink flowers that begin to bloom from spring to late autumn, which require a lot of sun. It is a well-adapted plant that flowers almost all year round and can be planted in a pot or in the ground.




PIt can be grown in pots placed near entrances or isolated. Also a good choice for hedges, barriers or plant screens. It grows best in stony soils, but is not picky about pH.




Fflowers blue from spring to late autumn.




AND a plant which resists down to -12 ºC. Plants can survive temperatures down to -15 ºC or lower, but eventually shed their leaves. They bloom best in warm, humid climates. 




DIt should be grown in full sun, but it can develop perfectly with just 4 to 6 hours of direct sun a day. 




ANDThis type of plant, must have exceptionally well-drained soil. During the first few times it should be watered regularly until it is well established, then treat it like the desert plant it is. Overwatered plants will struggle to flower.




ANDThis species does not like fertilizers or manure and will be reluctant to flourish in soil that is too rich.




APlants tend to disperse, becoming bare-legged as they age. To avoid this, keep the soil dry and lean and prune the tips to encourage branching with denser, more compact foliage. As the plant grows slowly, interventions of this nature do not require much frequency. 


It is a resistant plant, which can face droughts, frosts, strong winds, sea air, hungry animals and scorching heat and move on without major problems.
