Not surprisingly, a plant wishing to survive the harsh desert climate must think “protection” first. This vegetation looks quite attractive from a distance, but a very close inspection reveals most of these plants have wicked defenses built in. These defenses scream leave me alone or be sorry you didn’t!
I’ve collected a few photos of an assortment of common desert plants that follow. I hope you’ll find them wicked, beautiful, and interesting in their own way.
