Lycium exsertum

Thornbush

Native to southwestern Arizona and Mexico, from 2000 to 4000 feet, this dense, spiny shrub provides excellent cover and food for birds and wildlife. The arching braches and light green leaves are covered with white hairs. Small, white-purple flowers in the spring are followed by red berries. Plant in full sun, well-drained soils, and do not prune.
