Paperbag Bush

Paperbag bush in Mojave Desert
The Paperbag Bush (Salazaria mexicana) is a handsome, rounded bush with many inflated seed pods looking like white paperbags. Older pods are often tinged with rose. It grows along washes but also on rocky hillsides. Antelope ground squirrels climb in amoung the papery fruit to extract the seeds. The benefits of desert plants for wildlife are well known. Future investigations may find that these plants will help humans as well.
