aromatic foliage of this southwest native evokes the scent of rain in
the desert! Found virtually throughout the arid regions of the
west, this plant is always a favorite in native gardens as it is a
durable plant that can provide a solid foundation to the landscape.
Creosote tends to have an open appearance with sparse foliage on twisted
stems arising from a central base to 6' high and 8' wide. Some
plants will become larger if provided with more than ample water, so
remember size can be controlled somewhat by the amount of water
delivered. Yellow flowers are produced throughout the year, but
the heaviest in the spring. The flowers are followed by small
fuzzy seedpods. Plant in full sun and in well-drained soil for
best results. Creosote bush is hardy to 5°F. USDA Zone 7.
