Green arrow-straight stems with pairs of narrow pointed leaves help identify this spindly shrub.
A favorite of deer, it can grow to about 5 ft (150 cm) if not munched on. In fact, watching for this shrub's growth (or lack of it) in the wild can help resource managers assess the population density of deer in an area.
