Chaparral – Larrea tridentata

Estimated to be one of the oldest plants on Earth (with a stand in the Mojave Desert estimated to be over 11,000 years old) Larrea tridentata, or creosote bush, is native to desert ecosystems in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.

Small, bright yellow flowers usually bloom in the spring, but blooms may be delayed by lack of rain. Although Chaparral typically averages around 4-6 feet in height, plants growing in areas with greater rainfall have been known to reach a towering 12 feet tall.

The sticky resin found on the leaves of this desert shrub is reminiscent of creosote, giving Chaparral its distinct and pungent smell, especially strong after a rainfall. Though plentiful, harvesting Chaparral is a difficult task due to the abrasive nature of the stems and the stickiness of the leaves, even after they are dried.

The Creosote bush thrives in harsh desert habitats. The roots excrete a substance that will not allow other plants to grow nearby, helping to ensure its survival. You can not miss Chaparral; if you have been to the desert southwest, you have seen miles of land covered in these adaptable bushes. The waxy outer coating on the leaves seals in moisture and protects the plant from heat and harsh UV rays. With a highly efficient root system, in addition to blocking other plants from growing, Chaparral is able to absorb enough water to survive even during times of drought. The ability to clone itself adds to the reasons why Chaparral is one of the dominant forms of plant life in the area. It is also regarded as one of the most adaptable desert plants in the world.
