Hop-sage

March 10, 2016

It is very easy to tell male and female Hop-sages and Desert Hollies apart in the spring.  Hop-sage is leafing and blooming prolificly this spring due to a well spaced, normal rainfall this past winter.  The female flowers have green bracts that are on the tips of the stems that eventually turn a deep pink. The male flowers are small, yellowish with deep pink. They are pictured in the second photo.
