Looks Like Snow!

 

I saw this shrub on my last walk at the Desert Botanical Garden.  There was no sign to identify this plant so I don't know what it is.  When I looked at the photo, my first thought was that it looked like snow on pine branches but, I can assure you that it wasn't snow.  Not when we are still having temperatures in the 80's.  


It is certainly an interesting plant.  Does anyone have any ideas as to what it might be?

Don't know what it is, never seen this plant before, but it looks quite beautiful, and from a distance I'm sure it could be taken for snow.

There are a few apps around that are good for that sort of thing.

Yes... I was fooled in the first glace of thinking it was snow.

I have no idea, Sharon. I am certainly not looking forward to seeing snow!

No idea, but it is photogenic.

It DOES look like snow! My plant app says it's a "groundsel bush," Baccharis halimifolia. Could that be right?

Whatever it is, it's pretty.

I think you are right Steve!! I searched the images and I think that's it. Thanks very much.

No idea what it is, but it's pretty, and it really does look like snow!

How exquisite.

Revrunner said...

Dang! Don't know. But offhand, I'd call it a snow plant.

Steve did seem to nail it — seep willow, among other common names…
