|Found primarily in southern Arizona, this is perhaps the toughest of the wolfberry species. Plants are identifiable by their small leaves and dark bark. Purple flowers attract pollinators and the red fruits are an excellent wildlife food source. This species prefers well draining soil, and is generally found on slopes and wash edges in habitat.
