Rare Mojave Desert plant finally flowers after 50-year wait
A rare desert plant that was brought from California’s Mojave Desert to a botanical garden in Berkeley 50 years ago has just flowered for the first time.
The giant nolina is 15ft tall and has a companion nolina next to it that is yet to bloom.
