Amazingly, the creosote can be trained into a small tree, as shown at a home in 29 Palms (pictured below). It's green coloring is a nice contrast to the greys and greens of the shrub Texas Ranger.
Note that the 3-11 foot shrub is slow to medium growing. The creosote bush releases its aromatic oils and fills the air with a delightful smell during rains.
Creosote bush can be purchased at local nurseries and yearly native plant sales. Or wait awhile -- one or more may volunteer in your landscape -- free of charge!
