About This Plant
Sun or light shade. Evergreen, with fragrant white flowers very late in the year. A little-known South Texas native with heat and drought tolerance and landscape potential; it may be expected to do well in sand, caliche or even amended clay. The long, bicolored green-and-white leaves resemble olive or oleander, with a breezy, weepy form.
Chomonque is a fairly recent introduction, with few full-grown specimens locally; see it in the South Texas native areas at San Antonio Botanical Garden.
Little needed; prune to shape only.
This plant goes well with
- Berberis trifoliolata
- Jatropha dioica
