    Thank you very much.
    I saw a lot of Mortonia in Valley Of Fire park near Las Vegas and checked many sites for identification. None of them mentioned it but wikipedia says "They are native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico, where they are most abundant in dry regions. " Thank you!
