Mormon tea, Ephedra nevadensis grows along the western edges of the California deserts and up into southeastern Oregon, across Nevada into Utah and down into Arizona. Mormon tea is a small leafless shrub that flowers with weird flowers in spring followed by weird fruits in summer. Plant this in a hot dry spot next to the neighbor with the perennial garden they borrow money to tend. Your Ephedra nevadensis, a lounge chair, a large hat, a cool drink and a book. Do this every time your neighbors bring in another $200 worth of perennials and enjoy watching them work.
