Q.What Are Some Of Our Ocotillo Stems Silver

Zone Vail AZ | RyansInVail added on March 14, 2021 | Answered

We have many Ocotillos on the property that are beginning to get leaves but the one that has very few leaves on multiple stems has many stems that are silver on color. Are those stems dead? Should we remove them?
