        Utah Native Plants | Bitterbrush

        Bitterbrush (Purshia tridentata) has small, silvery leaves adapted for its life on sunny hillsides and rocky slopes at 3,500 to 9,000 feet. It is called the favorite browse of mule deer, and it is also eaten by elk. The seeds are eaten by pocket gophers, chipmunks, and ground squirrels. This image is drawn from the collection of Utah Native Plants contributed by the Red Butte Garden and Arboretum, University of Utah.
