Arizona is known for its unique cacti and blooming plants. This booklet is designed to inform you of which plants you are looking at as you travel through the desert.

From page 5: “The Joshua Tree – The name Joshua tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th Century. The Tree’s unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer. They are fast growers for the desert. The trunk of a Joshua tree is made of thousands of small fibers and lacks annual growth rings, making it difficult to determine the tree’s age. The evergreen leaves are dark green, linear, bayonet-shaped, broad at the base, tapering to a sharp point; they are borne in a dense spiral arrangement at the apex of the stems. The leaf margins are white and serrate. The flowers are produced in Spring. The semi-fleshy fruit that is produced is green-brown, elliptical, and contains many flat seeds. Once they bloom, the trees are pollinated by the yucca moth.”
