Ocotillo, Fouquieria splendens

Like a cactus?

But not really although they do have spiny branches with brilliant crimson red clustered tubular blossoms on the tips that hummingbirds love. Seen in the Sonoran desert. Leaves become scale-like almost opaque on stems. Medicinally used as a strong pelvic lymphatic for congestion of the reproductive system. For women (PMS congestion) and men (prostrate enlargement) as examples.
