1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    I found this on the property today and decided to give it a try. Not too badf anf noe ilf effcts. Ats lest nun Izzz cooooouuullldd seeeeee.

    OK kidding on the trying it bit. You would think it would be easy to find a name for a berry plant in the high desert. NO, they list how you can grow blueberries!!??

    So here it is. I call this bush Hell's Holly. Every part of this plant wants to hurt you. The green leaves are like little pins at every point. That is until they dry out, then they become daggers.

    I thought so to but the berry doesn't match with what i've seen before. This is a single berry about the size of a grape. Different variety than what I am used to seeing?

    Sue Holiday from the Arizona Native plant Society suggested it was a scrub oak,Quercus turbinella with an oak gall which is the home of an insect. I'm going with the scrub oak but the oak gall...? All of the galls I've seen have been solid colored bulbs. This was more translucent. When I get back I'll dissect the berry and find out. Get more pictures of the other berries as well.
