I've seen this growing in the wild on the 'El Camino Del Diablo Trail' (Devils' Highway) that runs between Ajo and Wellton in Arizona through the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge.

This plant is relatively easy to grow but do NOT over water it. Mine is doing quite well now, but I'm real careful about the watering of it. It can be shaped but don't prune it too drastically. Other plants seem to grow well around it, unlike the Creosote Bush.
