where to obtain creosote bush?

April 3, 2002

Call me crazy, but I'd really like to get a couple creosote bushes in my yard. I like the smell and they look nice when not deprived of water. Problem is, I've never seen a nursery around Phoenix that has them. Are there any?

I'm quite tempted to just drive my jeep into the desert and dig one up. For that matter, there's thousands of them along Maricopa Rd just south of Phoenix. Would it be illegal to obtain one this way?
