Likewise, Ehleringer (1984) found for the shrub Encelia
farinosa that the leaf water potential of plants from which neighbors had been removed was significantly and appreciably higher than in the leaves of control plants three months after the last rain.
There are clumps of the yellow-flowered Encelia
farinosa (Asteraceae), with specimens of the spiny ocotillo (Fouquieria splendens, see also photos 57 and 145) and the extremely prickly teddy bear cholla (Opuntia bigelovii), easily recognized by its abundant bright cream spines that embed themselves in passing animals.
