Baccharis salicifolia

Like a cross between Coyote Brush and a small willow, this deciduous shrub grows in dry rocky arroyos with an upright open form, spreading by the root. It's fairly drought-tolerant, actually. Good for a tallish open background shrub and high wildlife value in late summer with profuse fluffy flowers, though not 'showy' in a traditional sense.
