If so, it should be reported, since the BONAP page for Creososte Bush doesn't show it in Colorado or even in any county bordering on Colorado.

I know this is 10 days old, but I thought I would post that I'm confident that it's not a creosote.

these are called fishhook cactus here  because of the shape of the spines. they are found on the red rock canyon rims in the four corners. this one i dug on my family farm in southeast utah  probably 20 years ago or more and has been in a  plant pot in my backyard. it blooms every spring and the blooms last several weeks.

What about this thing? Found on a roadside next to a small stream.


Looks like a member of the Stonecrop (Sedum) family. Here in the west we have Spreading Stonecrop (Sedum divergens) and Oregon Stonecrop (Sedum oreganum). I'm not sure what specific varieties you would have in the east.
