Joshua Tree

( Yucca brevifolia )

Available individually or as part of XfrogPlants USA Southwest.

Joshua Tree is a large, erect arboreal plant, usually (but not always) single stemmed. Branches are erect, either ascending or spreading. Young exemplars are usually not branched while adult ones are forked and dense. It’s not easy to tell the age of a Joshua Tree because of the absence of annual rings. The sweet blossoms, the seeds, and the juicy fruits are all edible.

Origin: Southwest of USA, Northern Mexico
Environment: arid areas, in full or partial sunlight, on sandy rocky soil
Climate: hot, warm
