This bush is in the Phoenix area of the Sonoran desert and grows to about 1 meter high. It develops clusters of small round seed pods covered in spikes when mature. The leaf is sharply pointed.

Any information would be appreciated.

Hi Mark, we just approved your post. We can see the image was not uploaded... probably as the file size was too large. Please shrink down and try again? You can reply to yourself or me and then the image will stay in the same thread. You may also be able to 'edit' your original post as we allow that for a certain number of hours after posting. All the best, Nicola

Thanks Nicola,

What a great suggestion.

The leaf matches asclepias erosa perfectly, although these flowers seem to dangle in curling strands, rather than clusters.

Wonderful site. I look forward to learning more.

Great Mark:)) Where are you located? We have some webinars coming up (for hobby members and garden designers ... if you are one) which you may wish to join.

You can see all the upcoming webinars here.

Cheers, Nicola
p.s. we don't yet have Asclepias erosa in Shoot... if you'd like us to add it for you, you can request it here in this plant request form
