Plant has clustered, small, rayless yellow flowers at the end of gray-green stems. Gray-green, narrow, alternate leaves. Color varies with water: more gray in dry regions, greener in wetter regions.
Flowers have faint, strange, sweet smell.
Needs no water, exists on 11" to 15" of rainfall a year.
A pleasant-looking, maintenance-free perennial for the desert landscape or garden.
