| Green Condalia|
Green condalia grows in dry limestone slopes in West Texas to the Edwards Plateau and south to Mexico. Its bright green, somewhat oval leaves are 1/6 to 3/4 inches long. Like other Condalia species, the branchlets end in thorns, making it an excellent security barrier and wildlife habitat. The seeds are also a good source of food for birds and mammals. It differs from C. ericoides and C. warnockii by its longer and more ovate leaves.
