Creosote Bush

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 16 May 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

The bushes spaced just so are creosote bushes. As you may recall, they spread out so that their wide root systems can catch rain quickly when it happens. Also, their roots secrete a substance poisonous to most other plants thus lessening competition.
