Baccharis sarothroides is a species of flowering shrub known by the common names broom baccharis and desert broom. This is a spreading, woody shrub usually sticky with glandular secretions. The small, thick leaves are a few centimeters long and are absent much of the year, giving the shrub a spindly, twiggy gray appearance. It flowers abundantly in white blooms with separate flower heads for male and female blossoms. This plant is native to northern Mexico and the southwestern United States, where it is most common in the gravelly dry soils of the desert regions
