Parkinsonia aculeata or Jerusalem Thorn is a bizarre tree that is known for its vicious thorns and interesting leaves. The name Jerusalem has sparked a sense of mystery around this tree and the urban legend that its limbs could have been used to craft the thorned crown of Jesus Christ. However, the name is actually a corruption of the Spanish word girasol. Girasol means to turn toward the sun.

Jerusalem Thorn prefers moderate watering and displays obvious symptoms if conditions are not ideal. Underwatering can cause all of the tree's tiny leaves to shed. Leaf loss is not an aesthetic concern with the Jerusalem Thorn Tree though; its branches will become rich in chlorophyll and turn a green to continue photosynthesis in the absence of leaves.

Blooming in summer, these trees produce unique 5 petaled flowers. This larger petal on these flowers will turn vibrant red shortly after the bloom appears accentuating the tree's beauty further.
