#PlantoftheWeek: Stansbury Cliffrose

This shrub is one of the first spring plants to bloom in the Spring Mountains. Cliffrose has fragrant yellow-white flowers and is a popular browse for mule deer, bighorn sheep, and elk. Natives used the fibrous bark for clothing and rope, and the branches were used for arrows. Look for cliffrose around the rocky washes and hillsides near Fletcher Canyon and the Visitor Gateway.
