Bud and Blossom

Creosote Bush (Larrea tridentata) is a wonderful desert plant. The leaves are small and have an oily coating. Both adaptations prevent water loss. If you rub the leaves, you'll release the scent of the desert after rain. Click the link above to see photos of the fuzzy white fruits.
Remember, fruit is the thing that has the seed(s).
