Other Shrubs

fairy dusterShrubs are the predominant vegetation type around Tucson. Shrubs are woody plants that are too low to walk under, whereas trees are woody plants that you can walk under (at least when they are at their largest). There are many species of shrubs in our desert, and many of them add to our "wildflower" displays.
