The Chihuahuan Desert has plants like the Fishhook Cactus, Honey Mesquite, or Prickly Bear Cactus. The Mohave has many plant specie not found in the other adjoining deserts; the Mohave Yucca, Creosote Bush, Big Sagebrush, and Blackbush are common. The Sonoran Desert is the hottest of the four but moisture from the Pacific coast provides rain for plants and shrubs. Plants include the Barrel Cactus, Brittlebush, Octollo, Beaked Yucca, and Soaptree Yucca.
