Nuevo Diccionario Cuyás Appleton gives the following definition:

glaucous: (bot) cubierto de una pelusilla blanca azulosa.

I guess these are what we know in Argentina as:
ciruela remolacha
(dark plums with such a pelusilla).

Good luck! :)

"Glaucous" se refiere al color blanco, como dice Serena. En español también existe el adjetivo "glauco" (blanco, claro).

estoy de acuerdo con el anterior compañero. Yo estudié ingeniería técnica agrícola y hay mucha plantas con ese "adjetivo" Por ejemplo un cedro glauco. Nunca glaucosa y ese nombre en latín, larus o algo así me suena al laurus o sea laurel. Pon glauco o glauca y cualquier botánico te entenderá. Suerte
