DescriptionSiltbush is an autumn-deciduous shrub or sub-shrub ranging from 0.1 to 0.8 m in height (Goodrich and Neese 1986). Stems of the current year are thornless and erect or ascending, branching from a persistent, woody base. Leaves are gray-scurfy and entire to lobed. Overwintering leaf buds are prominent, axillary, and globose (Welsh and others 1987).
