So for a project in one of my classes we must identify two monocots and two dicots growing at our school. We've managed to identify all but one:

So more information:

  • My school is in southern nevada
  • It's about one foot tall
  • It's growing with joshua trees and oak trees and some rosemary.

Update: I think it's a texas sage, but I'm not completely certain, verification would be nice.

  • $\begingroup$ @TwistedGenes Thanks for informing me, I've posted the image $\endgroup$ – tox123 Apr 4 '18 at 1:15
  • $\begingroup$ That's a good guess, but I doubt it is Texas sage or Leucophyllum frutescens -- which is a common urban landscape shrub in the USA southwestern deserts. L. frutescens is more upright and bushier, and in particular, much grayer than the plant in your picture. Can you provide better/more pictures, from different angles, and especially pictures of any flowers that might be present? $\endgroup$ – Bryan Hanson Apr 7 '18 at 11:45
