Fouquieria diguetii

Fouquieria diguetii

The Adam's tree or Palo Adan (Fouquieria diguetii) is a many branched shrub with spiny branches arising from a short trunk. It somewhat resembles it cousin the Ocotillo, but is shorter and wider. It is also related to the Boojum tree. Photo taken in our beach campsite near Todos Santos, December 2002. Photo copyright 2002 Mimi Andersen.
