Lycium andersonii, commonly known as Anderson's desert-thorn, wolfberry or water jacket, is a species of flowering plant in the nightshade family (Solanaceae). Here's an overview of its characteristics:

Appearance: Anderson's desert-thorn is a shrub that typically grows up to 1 to 2 meters (3 to 6 feet) tall, although it can occasionally reach heights of up to 4 meters (13 feet). It has a dense, rounded form with many branches. The leaves are small, narrow, and elliptical, with a gray-green coloration. The plant produces small, tubular flowers that are typically purple or lavender in color.

Habitat: This species is native to arid and semi-arid regions of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. It is well-adapted to dry, sandy soils and can be found in desert scrub, washes, canyons, and rocky slopes.

Blooming Period: Anderson's desert-thorn typically blooms from spring to early summer, producing clusters of small, fragrant flowers. These flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.

Fruit: After flowering, Anderson's desert-thorn produces small, red or orange berries that are round and fleshy. These berries are edible and are consumed by birds and other wildlife, which aid in seed dispersal.

Cultural and Ecological Significance: In addition to providing food for wildlife, Anderson's desert-thorn can help stabilize soil in arid environments and provide habitat for native species. It is also valued for its ornamental qualities and drought tolerance, making it a popular choice for xeriscaping and native plant landscaping.
