This large, evergreen shrub is from the Mediterranean area of Europe and can tolerate both heat and coastal conditions. The foliage of Atriplex halimus ranges from rounded to somewhat diamond-shaped, measuring up to 2.5 inches long. Its silvery color makes it an ideal shrub to combine with other low-water perennials, bulbs and grasses. In the summer, it bears foot-long panicles of tiny whitish flowers. As a bonus, its leaves are edible.
