Death Valley National Park, Scotty's Castle Road (Google, OSM)

Description

These Desert Holly bushes were found on the Mesquite Flats region of the park at an elevation of 2,000 ft. They have numerous adaptations for living in this harsh desert climate including pale, leathery leaves that reflect light and help them retain their moisture

The leaves pale color comes from an excretion of salt on their outer surface and their angle helps limit the amount of direct sun that hits the surface of each leaf. They are common members of the creosote scrub communities and despite their similarity, are not related to the European Holly.

This was one of the "target" species for the trip and one that I had wanted to see for years. They are much more active in the spring, and despite several hikes in the dunes, they eluded me. We were fortunate enough to see this one under the pickleweed along Salt Creek.
