Description

Found at the Desert Botanical Garden, but didn't seem to be a planting -- maybe just a volunteer (tho who knows, could be a descendent of a planting, so might still be a cultivar).

Hmm: bonus bug, top center: seems to be a fruit fly (Tephritidae), Tephritini -- new family for me. (Apparently dipterists are trying to get people to call Drosophilidae 'vinegar flies' instead of 'fruit flies', and reserve the latter name for this taxon. Lotsa luck!)
