Bumelia, my old friend.

Bumelia is one of those plants that seems so out of place. A “what the heck?” sort of plant. The species ranges from Florida,  across the southern states and ending up in southeastern Arizona, its most western location. There are some beautiful thickets of Bumelia along arroyos in the desert grassland between Gleeson and Tombstone. You should go look.
