Ceanothus integerrimus Hook. & Arn.
Ceanothus mogollonicus Greene
Ceanothus integerrimus is the least common of the three members of this genus thus far found in the Gila. Ceanothus integerrimus has strongly three veined leaves, like C. fendleri, but the leaves are much larger and the small branches do not end in a thorn as they do in C. fendleri. The leaves of C. integerrimus are glabrous underneath, also unlike C. fendleri which is pubescent. C. integerrimus is found on dry mountain slopes.
