Valentine Emu Bush
There’s a fantastic shrub that blooms for Valentine’s Day. It grows well in our desert landscapes. And, it’s even called a Valentine bush. It’s the Valentine Emu Bush (Eremophila maculata ‘Valentine’).
This shrub gives you winter color and hummingbirds love it. Our cooler January through March weather brings on the beautiful bright pink flowers.When it’s not blooming, it stays green and can handle our heat. Another advantage for home landscapes and common areas is that it only gets to be four to five feet tall. So, it can fit in most landscape areas without needing constant maintenance or getting too large for it’s space.
If you’re looking for something in blue, the Emu Bush can help you with that too. There is a Blue Bells Emu Bush (Eremophila hygrophana) too! This is a smaller shrub only growing to two to three feet tall. It can be placed in an even smaller area than the Valentine Emu Bush. It makes a great patio shrub.
The Emu bush isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. We can help you if you have a question about a plant. Give us a call at (520) 370-5697 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HAVE A VERY HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
