Joshua Trees (yucca brevifolia) are widespread throughout arid lands in the south western United States, especially at the level of the Mojave Desert. The name is said to have been given by a group of Mormons who crossed the Mojave in the 19th century, and the branches reminded them of the Biblical Joshua, reaching up to the sky in prayer.
