The largest of the saltbushes, growing to 3m. The leaves are an attractive silvery-grey. Flowers appear throughout the year on separate male or female plants. Frost and salt tolerant, it is hardy and responds well to pruning. Can be used in wind breaks or pruned into an attractive hedge. Frequently used as a fodder plant for sheep and cattle as it is drought tolerant and is an excellent forage when other feed is scarce. Does best in a sunny, well drained position. It will not tolerate water logging.
