This member of the rose family is native to the Chihuahuan Desert in northeast Mexico, primarily in the state of Nuevo Leon. Antelope bush is at home in the dry grasslands of the upland scrub and oak / juniper forests. The foliage resembles that of our native cliffrose, with small, 3-5 lobed, dark green leaflets. Plants are evergreen in lower elevations, but might loose their leaves at higher elevations. During the warm months showy pink 5 petaled flowers provide color. The fruit is slender and feathery in appearance and attracts wildlife.
