The vegetation of the Mojave and Colorado deserts:

Desert Riparian

riparian environment, Amargosa River, Beatty, Nevada
Extensive riparian zones are found along some stretches of the Mojave, Colorado, and Amargosa Rivers where water is available year-round. Elsewhere, springs provide water for year-round creeks in isolated canyons of desert mountains. Cottonwoods (Populus fremontii ), several species of willows (Salix spp.) and mesquite are the most common trees of the riparian areas. Desert broom (Baccharis sarothroides) is common along with many other shrubs, grasses, and herbs.
