Are there plants that thrive on dessert lands?

         Yes. Some plant species have adapted to the desert environment. Cacti have evolved to store water efficiently, while other plants grow long roots to reach moisture deep below the ground. Some plants remain dormant during dry periods and bloom during the short time that water is available.

    The Joshua tree is one of my favorite plants adapted to the desert environment.  Below is a picture of the beautiful plant in bloom.

    Native plants in desert atmospheres are called succulents, and they retain moisture for extended periods of time…which is what makes them so conducive to the desert climate which typically receives little rain.  Agave, Aloe, and Yucca are all types of desert plants, amongst many others.
