Joshua TreeYucca brevifolia v. brevifolia, the Joshua Tre.e is one of the landmark plants of the Mojave Desert. Not truly a tree, Joshua Trees are members of the Yucca family. Although not truly a tree, they are among the tallest plants in the Mojave Desert, often reaching heights of 25 feet or more.
This subspecies of Joshua grows throughout the Western Mojave. As they mature, in spring they bloom with gorgeous, large white to cream-white flower clusters which bees and hummingbirds enjoy.
Joshua trees do tolerate cold temperatures, and are highly drought resistant once established. Once established, watering at the roots can actually weaken the plant, and cause it to fall over. They prefer gritty, calcium rich, alkaline soils. For the first few years, and when plants are less than 12 inches tall, infrequent, deep watering is needed.
