Reasons: This plant occurs in the U.S. in California, Nevada, and Arizona (Kartesz 1999). It occurs in five southern counties in California, two southern counties in Nevada, and three western counties in Arizona (Kartesz 2003 draft).

In California, it inhabits dry, rocky slopes and canyons < 1250 m in the eastern San Bernandino mountains, Desert Mountains, Sonoran Desert, Mojave Desert (Hickman 1993). It is locally common in Nevada, but known only from the southern part of the state, from the Spotted Range, southern Nye County; south to mounatins north of the road, from playa near Saddle, into Indian Springs Valley, northcentral Spotted Range, Clark County. It inhabits canyons, rocky hillsides, and washes in desert ranges with Larrea and Coleogyne from 1800-5500 ft. (Kartesz 1988) In Arizona, it inhabits dry, rocky slopes and cliffs, 1500-4000 ft (Kearney and Peebles 1960).

Wikipedia

Crossosoma bigelovii


Crossosoma bigelovii, known by the common name ragged rockflower, is one of only a few species in the flowering plant family Crossosomataceae.

It is native to the Mojave, Chihuahuan, and Sonoran Deserts of North America. It has been reported from the states of Arizona, California, Nevada, Baja California, Chihuahua, and Sonora.[1]

Uses[edit]

Ragged rockflower is occasionally used as an ornamental plant in habitat gardens and natural landscaping. It can be grown from seed in well-drained soil for a desert butterfly garden. It is a difficult plant for the average homeowner to grow, as over-watering will kill it.[2]
