Leaves and blooms seem incorrect for A. villosa.

Hi Tiffany, I see what you mean. I thought it was ID'd on the plant ID forum but I can't find it now. I hope we can get a correct ID and get it moved. I love this plant!

Rolling on the floor laughing Thanks! I made the ball out of an old bowling ball. It's a lot of fun to cover them with whatever you have.

Thanks! Here is an old thread about the bowling ball and other things for the garden.
The thread "My Bowling ball art" in Garden Art forum

I have a book on desert wildflowers of NM. It shows plants that look like mine and call them Abronia villosa. It does say that in higher altitudes of NM there are other species of it. I'm at 6500 ft elevation, so maybe mine is a different one. Will have to try to find out.

TYVM! Will check it out.

If it's still in the garden, a few more (closer) pics might be all it takes for someone to help steer you, if you want to solicit opinions.
