Fagonia is a genus of plants in the Zygophyllaceae (Caltrop) family. [more]
Guaiacum, sometimes spelled Guajacum, is a genus of flowering plants in the caltrop family Zygophyllaceae. It contains five species of slow-growing shrubs and trees, reaching a height of approximately 20 m (66 ft) but are usually less than half of that. All are native to subtropical and tropical regions of the Americas and are commonly known as lignum-vitae, guayac?n (Spanish), or ga?ac (French). The genus name originated in Maipurean, the language spoken by the native Ta?nos of the Bahamas; it was adopted by English in 1533, the first word in that language of American origin. [more]
Larrea is a genus of flowering plants in the caltrop family, Zygophyllaceae. It contains five species of evergreen shrubs that are native to the Americas. The generic name honours Spanish scientist J.A. de Larrea. South American members of this genus are known as jarillas and are so closely related that hybrids are partially fertile. One of the more notable species is the Creosote Bush (L. tridentata) of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico The King Clone ring in the Mojave Desert is a Creosote Bush clonal colony estimated to be 11,700 years old.
