The Joshua tree thrives at elevations of 2,000 to 6,000 feet in the Mojave Desert. The largest of the yuccas, this plant varies in size from 25 to 40 feet high and 1 to 3 feet wide. This tree yields bell-shaped flowers that are 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches wide. These yellowish-green flowers appear in clusters and bloom in the spring. The Joshua tree also produces an elliptical fruit.
