Boojum Craziness


I have a new favorite desert plant- the boojum tree. It is actually not an Arizona native, but it was planted at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. It’s related to the ocotillo, another favorite of mine- but it is CRAZY looking!

It’s REALLY tall! I would say this specimen is 15-20 feet high.



Below is a young one.


And another view of the trunk. . .
