difference between masculine and feminine ocotillo plants
While I was hiking, someone pointed out that a trained observer can tell the difference between masculine and feminine ocotillo plants. This thought had never occurred to me. Is this true? My friend said the masculine plants are streamlined and straight, whereas the feminine plants spread out and are more open. Is this true or simply a wives' tale?

No this is not true. There is not a female and male plant.
The plant is pollinated by Carpenter Bees and Humming Birds.
