The vegetation of the Mojave and Colorado deserts:

Blackbush Scrub

This vegetation association, dominated by blackbush (Coleogyne ramosissima), gives the landscape a drab color across a range of elevations up to 5,000 feet. It can be found in large dense stands on north-facing slopes or as an understory with Joshua Tree Woodland or Pinyon- Juniper Woodland throughout the Mojave Desert. Some of the associated species include Mormon tea (Ephedra nevadensis, E. viridis), hop-sage (Grayia spinosa), winter fat (Krascheninnikovia lanata), and horsebush (Tetradymia stenolepis).
