After a rain these plants give off a musty, resinous odor which is the basis of the Mexican name, hediondilla (freely translated, "little stinker"). Also known as gobernadora.(lady governor, governors wife) A member of the Caltrop Family.

This many-branched shrub can grow to 10' but most are under 6'. Creosote blooms periodically with peaks in March-April and November-December.
