Apache Plume

(Fallugia paradoxa) 

Apache plume is a semi-evergreen shrub native to the inter-mountain west. The plants have shredding, reddish-gray bark and can grow to a height of 61 to 122 cm (24 to 48 in.). The wild rose-like flowers are white and bloom heavily from April to June, although the plants may bloom anytime during the growing season. The seeds are small with a pinkish, plumed tail and occur in clusters resembling an Indian headdress. Apache plume grows in sandy to clayey soils on rocky, shallow sites. It is very drought-tolerant and grows in areas with an annual rainfall of 13 to 30.5 cm (5 to 12 in.).

Seed should be planted 0.5 to 1 cm (1/5 to 2/5 in.) deep. Planting dates should be late fall or early to late spring. Seed may require pretreatment to increase germination. Apache plume is used for re-vegetating big game ranges and for landscaping. The deep root system makes it useful in stabilizing and re-vegetating slopes and gullies.
