Reid, are you visiting the southwest? I don't think any of these plants grow in Minnesota. Smiling

Greasewood and Creosote Bush are the same plant - Larrea tridentata.

It has several common names, I just clicked the Creosote Bush name so it is now the main one. (see how my post updated automatically)
