Ocotillo Leaves


I see the Fouquieria diguetii is leafing out nicely getting ready for Spring.

And those are some nice fresh leaflets there.

These Ocotillo are from Baja California and are named for Diguet, a French pearl explorer in the gulf of California. Or so we find out here. We also learn the proper common name is not Ocotillo, even though it is an Ocotillo, but you’ll have to click the link to learn it for yourself.
