Horticulture Q and A from the Mojave Desert
That's a big one...I might be able to rival that ocotillo's size, but Las Cruces or El Paso aren't in Las Vegas! We even have some in Albuquerque, but not as large as down south, maybe with our shorter growing season and cooler winters. Always nice to see thriving, large ocotillos like that, almost able to stand on it's own in the space.
Alot of thanks for David's response. If you are a lover of the desert and landscape design and architecture, his blog is a wonderful place to visit. http://desertedge.blogspot.com
Did you really mean 22 feet? Wow, I have never seen one that big.
