Vauquelinia californica

Vauquelinia californica, commonly known as Arizona Rosewood, is a species within the rose family Rosaceae. This shrub species is found in the southwestern portion of the USA and in Baja california and Baja California Sur.[2] The species has attracted some interest as an ornamental plant. From pollen core data, a portion of the prehistoric distribution of this species has been mapped; for example in the Late Wisconsin period, V. californica occurred in the Waterman Mountains of northern Arizona, although the species does not occur in this location presently.[3]

The genus was named for French chemist Louis Nicolas Vauquelin (1763-1829).
