Representative plants of the Desert Pavilion

Cactus have thorns instead of leaves,
and they have a unique shape that is not seen in other plants,
such as a spherical, oblate, or cylindrical shape.
Cactus is designed to retain a lot of moisture in the tissue for a long time
and can withstand long drying.

In addition, there are many deep wrinkles on the surface of the cactus,
and these wrinkles are known to act as a radiator to regulate body temperature
so that the body temperature does not rise excessively
by the surrounding radiant heat.
Most of the succulent plants are small, thick, and have hard leaves,
so they the power both to store moisture
and to endure the severe environment.
