Green Cloud is one of the most deciduous varieties of Leucophyllum frutescens and was cloned and trademarked by Texas A&M University.
Be sure to plant Green Cloud in ample sunlight and well-drained soil. The growth rate will vary depending on the amount of supplemental water applied during the growing season. Water established plants every two to three weeks in the summer. There is no need apply fertilizer or extra water during the winter. Prune once or twice in the spring or summer to remove dead stems and to increase density.
