Observed near Telegraph Pass in South Mountains, Phoenix, Arizona, Dec. 2008.
RANGE: Rare in scattered locations from Phoenix South Mountain
Park thence south and west to Yuma and Organ Pipe Monument. In the Sonoran
Desert of Baja California, the nearly frost-free climate allows for larger,
handsome and beautiful trees.
