Skunkbrush may reach a height of 2 to 8 feet. Geographical differences in height and growth form exist. In the Southwest, skunkbrush is more branching and dense, whereas in the north, it is higher. This thicket-forming shrub can grow in a rounded, mound-like, or upright shape. Skunkbrush reproduces by seed and rhizomes. Skunkbrush flowers appear early in the spring, before the leaves emerge. Fruit ripens from August to October on average. Drupes ripen between June and October. Fruit may be found all year round.
