FOUQUIERIA COLUMNARIS PDF

Central Phoenix -- Surprisingly, Boojum tree grows rather well in pots. I have a plant that I acquired about as a finger-sized specimen. It is now two feet tall -- I might actually live long enough to see it become a real tree? I keep the pot outside all year long in partial shade. I water it only a couple times a year, when the thornless hedgehog cactus in the pot with it starts to get too wrinkled. Otherwise it is dependent on what rain we get.

Fouquieria columnaris Boojum Tree, Cirio. The generic name refers to P. Fouquier, a Parisian medical professor. The specific epithet refers to the stout upward tapering trunk, which resembles a column. He named it after a "mythical thing called a boojum found in desolate far-off regions, coined in the book The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carrol.

The Boojum Tree is placed into the genus Idria by some authors. The trunk has several pencil-like short branches with deciduous leaves. On older trees, the main trunk splits into two or more stems near the top which resemble the arms of an octopus. The cream to yellow tubular flowers bloom from July to August and appear at the tops of the trunks and near the stem tips. Due to the its thin branching structure and heavy spines, not many animals use this plants as forage or habitat.

Raptors, however, frequently nest in the crotch of some upper branches. The lichen Ramalina menziesii , or Orchilla, grows on the Boojum in such abundance that in the late nineteenth century the Orchilla was collected and sold for the production of dye. In some areas the epiphyte Ball Moss Tillandsia recurvata covers it as well.

Fouquieria columnaris - Boojum, Cirio

It is nearly endemic to the Baja California Peninsula both the northern and southern states , with only a small population in the Sierra Bacha of Sonora , Mexico. The peculiar distribution pattern of the mainland boojums has led Mexican botanists to conclude that they were probably transplanted to the mainland by the indigenous Seri people , who lived in this area and still live on communal property south of this location. Given this belief, the hypothesis that the Seri people transplanted it is doubtful. They can grow to a height of 20 meters almost 70 feet. The flowers bloom in summer and autumn; they occur in short racemes , and are creamy yellow with a honey scent. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Kellogg Kellogg ex Curran.
