Ambrosia dumosa (White Bursage)

Ambrosia dumosa
Burrobush, White Bursage, White Bur Sage

This small shrub is native to much of the Southwest, at elevations from 500 to 3500 feet. It is a revegetation staple in areas where it is the main understory plant. The small gray leaves are covered with short white hairs. The insignificant flowers produce abundant pollen, which can be a nuisance for allergy sufferers. The flowers are follwed by prickly burs. It requires well-drained soil, full sun exposures, and some supplemental irrigation until established in the landscape.
