        Utah Native Plants | Sagebrush

        View an image of Sagebrush. Sagebrush (Artemesia tridentata ), one of the most abundant shrubs in the west, lives in well-drained soils of sunny, open slopes at 4,500- 10,000 feet. Sagebrush is a shrub, but it has green leaves all year. Every spring additional ephemeral leaves grow on this plant to maximize photosynthesis; they drop off when the weather becomes hotter and drier. Sagebrush leaves have a very strong scent. This plant is eaten by deer and livestock, sage grouse, and many other small animals. The image is drawn from the collection of UTAH NATIVE PLANTS contributed by the Red Butte Garden and Arboretum, University of Utah.
