이런환상적인 꽃봉우리를 그동안 지나치고 있었다니??

I never seen this beautiful Joshua flowers

and spring Yucca flowers in my life

@ Red Rock Canyon Late Night trail

Joshua trees don't bloom every year.

But when they do bloom it is usually universal, synchronized and spectacular. Flower clusters (inflorescences), with many dozens of blossoms each in each cluster, are abundant

Wow~~as big as my head.

look alike a Wedding Bouquet!

Young Joshua Tree in Bloom (Yucca brevifolia). Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas

Joshua trees typically grow more than 20 feet tall (6 meters).

They may take 60 years to come to maturity, and can live more than 500 years.

Desert regions above 5,000 feet may have plants blooming as late as June

The young fruit is edible

and may be sliced and seeded, then dried, or eaten fresh.

The seeds may be eaten raw or roasted.

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
