Sagebrush
Artemisia tridentata

Season:  
Habitat:
 Western Slope Montane
Height:
 Up to 2 m

Description: Sagebrush requires very dry habitats. It is usually found on hot western slope hillsides. Its narrow, triangular shaped leaves, widening outwards from the stalk, usually have three teeth at the tip. The tiny yellow-green flowers grow in groups of 3-6. Their disk-like heads resemble a daisy with the petals removed. This highly nutritious plant forms critical forage for many animals and birds--particularly during the winter months. It is even more nutritious than alfalfa.
