Discover the stunning beauty of Prunus andersonii, also known as desert peach or desert almond. This rose family shrub, reaching up to 80 inches in height, is beautifully adorned with long gray spines lining its narrow branches. Its clusters of serrated, oval leaves and concave pink petals, each measuring under a centimeter, are small but charming. Fuzzy reddish-orange drupes, about the size of a centimeter, adorn the shrub in ample moisture years, but dry in drought years. Native to eastern California and western Nevada, this shrub thrives in forests and scrub in desert and mountain regions. It reproduces sexually via germination of the seed and vegetatively through sprouting from its rhizome, forming large clones spanning across acres. This beautiful shrub also provides a source of food for rodents, while its medicinal and culinary benefits are valued by Native American groups such as the Paiute and Cahuilla. Admire the beauty and benefits of Prunus andersonii for yourself.
