Just because summer is coming to an end doesn't mean that colorful flowers are too.

Broom Snakeweed (Gutierrezia sarothrae)

Skunkbrush Sumac (Rhus aromatica var. trilobata)
Tufted Evening Primrose (Oenothera caespitosa)
This Utah native is a great perennial to have in any xeric garden with its large four-petaled flowers, bright pink buds, and delicate aroma. It does best when grown in full sun with dry, infertile, well-drained soil and given plenty of room to spread.
Rubber Rabbitbrush (Chrysothamnus nauseosus)
Pinyon Pine (Pinus edulis)
Pinyon pine is a widely distributed tree that grows throughout the Intermountain region of North America. It is sometimes called the Colorado Pinyon.
In the wild it grows very slowly, and trees with a trunk diameter of 6 to 8 inches can be over a hundred years old. Pinyon's typically grow in either pure stands or mixed with Utah juniper.
