Native to Nevada, this shrub grows 4-6 ft. tall and has small yellow flowers in spring. The golden berry is edible but youll have to beat the birds to taste it. Good under planted with conifers and shade trees, it is very useful in low water zones of the yard. Plant in full to partial sun, well-drained soil and in a once-a-week watering zone. This plant is not bothered by rabbits, squirrels nor deer.
