Growing Native with Petey Mesquitey
Pale Wolfberry

When the Mesquitey family lived near Tucson I worked in a crazy wonderful nursery that was at the base of A-Mountain (Sentinel Peak) right next to the Santa Cruz River. It was there that I fell in love with the native Fremont Wolfberry, so much so that we propagated it at the nursery and I ended up writing song called When the Wolfberries Bloom on A Mountain. Sad, but true.
Anyway, near our home in Cochise County, Arizona we find two species of wolfberry; Lycium berlandieri and L. pallidum (this episode). And here is good news… we need all we can get…you can find wolfberries at native plant nurseries. How cool is that? Very.

The photos are mine and taken at our home near the banks of the Ol’ Guajolote.
