The vegetation of the Mojave and Colorado deserts:

Saltbush Scrub and Shadscale Scrub

These communities are frequently associated with moderately alkaline soils. Dominant species of the Saltbush Scrub include several members of the Atriplex genus including saltbush (Atriplex canescens), shadscale (A. confertifolia), and allscale (A. polycarpa). These species, along with hop-sage and winter fat, make up the Shadscale Scrub vegetation community at higher elevations in the northern Mojave and around Death Valley.
