Plants in the Mojave Desert

Yucca Clone Rings

The Mojave yucca, (yucca schidigera) can sprout from seeds when fertilized by the yucca moth, or can clone itself by rhizome extension producing copies of its DNA within the sprouts. Yucca rings can be as large as 20 feet in diameter and have up to as many as 130 stalks. Rings as rare as these are thought to be at least 2,100 years old.



This yucca ring is actually considered one plant rather than of the many it appears to be.
