Joshua tree (jòsh´¡-e
A treelike plant (Yucca brevifolia) of the southwest United States, having sword-shaped leaves and greenish-white flowers grouped in large panicles.
[Probably after Joshua, from
the resemblance of the tree's greatly extended branches to Joshua's outstretched
arm as he pointed with his spear to the city of Ai (Joshua 8:18).]
