|One of the best native plants for attracting birds to a yard, this deciduous (shedding its leaves annually) tree has distinct knobby grey bark and bright orange berries. Consider planting with mesquite (Prosopis velutina), saltbush (Atriplex spp.), wolfberry (Lycium spp.), and cholla (Cylindropuntia spp.) for a garden with high wildlife value. This species will do better than Desert Hackberry in colder localities. Net-leaf hackberry is also a larval source for butterflies in the Apaturinae family.
