Apache Plume:

A drought tolerant, deciduous shrub. It ranges from 2-6 ft. tall with green foliage(silver beneath) with white flowers and pink puffs of fruit heads. Fruit clusters with feathery, pinkish tails resemble Apache headdress. Part shade is best but thrives in poor soil, high heat and low water conditions. A great plant for West Texas.
