    Interesting post Daniel. Common snowberry – Symphoricarpos albus – would appear to be heteroblastic as well as long basal shoots typically have significantly larger leaves and leaves with different shapes as well. However, these plants do not grow in settings that are anywhere near as susceptible to extreme drought stress, so I find myself wondering about the adaptive value of heteroblasty as something other than a drought-defense strategy in some species.

    The spiny looking dwarf mountain-mahogany is the perfect foil for the undulating rock formation.
