Fouquieria columnaris, or the Boojum Tree, or cirio is a tree in the ocotillo family(Fouquieriaceae), endemic to the deserts of Baja California and a small area of Sonora, Mexico. The "tree" is actually a striking cacti with an upright form and imposing columnar height. These are winter growers from October to April and then go dormant in the hotter weather. Their fantastic form resembles an up-side down carrot and groups of them creates an astounding display as the vertical trunks snake up from the earth.
