A must-have for any birdwatcher’s garden! Birds fancy Desert Hackberry for its tiny, edible red berries that are a major source of food in fall, for the dense foliage that extends much-needed shelter from summer heat, and for the multitudes of thorny branches that provide a safe place to build homes. Several species of butterfly are also commonly seen fluttering about the shrub’s dark green leaves, searching for a safe place to lay eggs. Aside from its ability to attract wildlife, Desert Hackberry is a fairly indistinct shrub, which makes it an ideal background, foundation or border plant that won’t detract attention from garden specimens.
