Description

Krascheninnikovia lanata (Winterfat)

Strikingly white-gray low shrub

Winterfat gets its name from the fact that it provides a good source of food for wildlife in the winter.  It forms a small, dense shrub with whitish-gray leaves.  Flowers are not very noticeable, but the fruit growing along the stem are covered with white hairs, making a fluffy wand of white along the upper stems.  Normally grows in alkaline soils.  Photo by Jim Hanson.
