DescriptionA unique selection of antelope bitterbrush (Purshia tridentata [Pursh] DC) recently became the first accession of this valuable western shrub species to be released for commercial seed collection and production. Chosen for its productivity, palatability, winter leafiness, cover value, and seedling vigor, 'Lassen' antelope bitterbrush is a useful shrub for wildlife and livestock ranges, conservation plantings, and reclamation projects on adapted sites in the Intermountain and Pacific Northwest regions.
