smoke tree Psorothamnus spinosus

Description

Smoke Trees are fascinating in that their germination requires the seed to be wet and scarred. For this reason, they are found almost entirely in desert washes. During heavy rains when the washes flood, the seeds are tumbled across the sands, tearing at their protective outer coat and allowing the moisture to get in.

In bloom they have a shocking array of large, bluish-violet flowers.
