Senegalia greggii (A. Gray) Britton & Rose

Common Names
Wait-a-minute Bush

Habitat
Most common in washes where its roots have access to deep water. Its seeds require physical scarification in order to germinate. This effectively prevents germination unless a flash flood disturbs the area and deposits enough water to increase the likelihood that seedlings will establish deep enough roots to survive the dry season. Catclaw is fully drought-deciduous and will usually lack leaves for most of the year.

Flowers
The flowers are produced in dense cylindrical spikes, each flower with five yellow petals 3 mm long and numerous yellow stamens 6 mm long.

Description
A large shrub or small tree growing to 10 m tall with a trunk up to 20-30 cm diameter. The grey-green leaves are deciduous.

Comments
Frequently afflicted with desert mistletoe.
