More Desert Flora

This is a relative of the century plant. It grows for a number of years, and then produces one tall flower and dies.

I have forgotten what this is called, but it has saw-like teeth along the edge of its spiky leaves.

Prickly pear and some other things, loaded with thorns and spines. It's like another world out there!


  1. You just reminded me to try and identify my spikey plant.

  2. I could get lost in some of your show me things I wouldn't see otherwise..
