Fouquieria columnaris-BooJom  

A unique specimen, usually just a single trunk that grows upright to about 50' tall.  Boojum is extremely slow growing, and is only in leaf through the warm season.  Yellow to cream flowers are produced in clusters, but only tend to be produced on plants smaller than 6' tall.  The succulent trunk can withstand considerable drought while dormant, needs regular water while in leaf.
