Cholla Cactus Garden

Joshua Tree National Park

The Cholla Cactus Garden is located on the gentle northwestern bajadas of Joshua Tree’s Pinto Basin. This area lies within the ecological transition zone between the Mojave and Colorado deserts. Loose gravel and sand brought down from nearby mountains form alluvial fans and bajadas at their base; these loosely-packed, well-drained slopes are ideal for prolific cacti growth – especially the Teddy Bear Cholla.
