Fairy Duster

This little desert shrub shines in spring when fluffy pink flowers decorate the ends of its woody stems. Resembling pink puffballs, the flowers last for several weeks and attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Fairy duster is a great plant for dry desert and rock gardens. It works well as an informal hedge. It will tolerate some shade, but it flowers best in full sun.
