A fantastic deciduous native plant is often seen in washes and arroyos from New Mexico to Southern Colorado and Utah. Grows fast to 6ft.-12ft., usually less. Can be shaped into a single or multi-stemmed small tree or used as a large shrub, even a hedge, as it responds well to pruning. Bright green olive-like leaves turn bright yellow after the first frost. Light-colored branches add contrast during the winter months. Yellow flowers are followed by dark blue berries in clusters. Very drought tolerant, cold hardy and deer resistant.
