Wildflowers of Southern Arizona
The flowers are in tapering, lopsided clusters at the tips of the spiny, slender, woody canes (whip-like branches). The individual flowers are tubular, 1 inch (2.5 cm) long, and have 5 lobes. When present, the leaves are green, alternate, and oval or egg-shaped. The canes are leafless for much of the year, only leafing out after rains.
