The next three photos have another interesting plant that is also blooming right now. This is Winterfat or Krascheninnikovia lanata. This silver leaved drought tolerant shrub is blanketed with a white woolly coat of seed heads in the fall. These seed heads remain through much of the winter making it seem to glow when backlit by the low winter light. And as the common name implies, it is excellent forage for animals in winter. It is also very beautiful in dried arrangements. This is an excellent low maintenance plant for a xeriscape.
The last two photos are of Green Rabbitbrush. You can see the curling leaves that differentiate it from Broomweed and that it has a more compact growth habit than the Silver(Rubber) Rabbitbrush it commonly occurs with. It also makes a great low maintenance plant for xeriscape landscaping, attracts butterflies and other pollinators and provides shelter for birds and small mammals.
Hopefully this will give you some ideas for a new additions to your garden.
