Our Mystery Tree (5/10)

I noticed this tree next to a giant coyote brush shrub last week when I was on the land. I can’t figure out what it is. I’d love someone’s opinion. The twigs are reddish. I may have to wait until it flowers to get more clues. 


  1. I agree with you, Kim. A lot of small trees and shrubs have this coloring and leaf shape. Flowers and fruits provide much more information. I’ll have to wait to see if it flowers. Toyan is native, so it could be that.
