Lycium andersonii

Waterjacket and Anderson's Wolfberry.

We are not selling this product. This page is for informational purposes only.

Waterjacket,  Lycium andersonii, is a wonderful plant from the desert. The Wolfberries are savored by every critter out there. The plants are nice looking have a fair flower show and easy to grow in their environment. But they do not like our nursery much because they get too much winter rainfall and freeze out. Our employees (and Celeste) don't like them because of the little thorns that stick when weeded.

Use Anderson's Wolfberry in a sandy or gravelly sunny spot in the lower desert,San Joaquin Valley, San Diego  or Los Angeles, water them in and maybe a few more waterings, then see ya later. I'd mix some of the associated plants into a 'cactus garden'.

Associated plants include   Acamptopappus, Artemisia tridentataEphedra viridis, Eriogonum polifolium, Eurotia lanata, Grayia spinosa, Haplopappus linearifolius,  Larrea tridentataOpuntia basilaris, Prunus fasciculata, Salazaria mexicana, Yucca baccata, Yucca brevifolia, and  Yucca schidigera.
