Plants native to the Sonoran Desert require watering every 6 months. The following plant, which I am not sure is native to the Sonoran Desert or not, was found to thrive in the Sonoran Desert solely off rain. What is this plant?

Is this an offshoot of a tree? It sprung up right next to the trunk a young (albeit dead or dormant) tree: Shrub #6

    Can you post some more photos of the surrounding area? Particularly from the base if the suspected original tree is already pictured?
