Creosote bush

Creosote, the most common plant in the Mojave Desert
The creosote (Larrea tridentada) is the most common plant of the hot, dry deserts. Many animals live in and around the creosote, despite repllent oils and resins that discourage browsing. Look for insects, lizards, and the round, brown galls of midge larvae. Rodent burrows among the roots aerate the soil, which helps water drainage.
