Joshua Tree - after flowering

A few weeks ago, I posted pictures of a flowering Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia). A few weeks later, those flowers had produced fruits:

Joshua tree fruits

More fruit - this is the same tree as pictured in the previous post

It made a lot of fruits - must have been a good year for Joshua moths...

Once a branch flowers, it will split into multiple branches

This is what an old flower stalk looks like - weird!

  1. That's some heavy fruiting for sure...I need to check ours' in the area, to see if they fruit. Our yucca moths might be different, but they might not care which Yucca awaits their pollination? Your old flower stalk looks like most yuccas I see.


Please share your thoughts!
