Native to dry slopes of the southwestern U.S., from 3000 to 8000 feet, this woody evergreen shrub is slow-growing and long-lived. Small, leathery green leaves line the twisted branches. Fragrant creamy yellow flowers in spring and summer are followed by fruit with long, showy feathery plumes. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils. Syn: Cowania mexicana
