This member of the Fouquieriaceae family was given this name by Albert Kellogg in 1885. It is found in the central Baja California (Mexico) and a few places on the mainland. It grows on the rocky hill-sides in well-drained grit with a little water and lots of sun. The stem will get 50 centimetres wide and reach 18 meters. Can only be reproduced by seeds.

The name in honour of: P.E. Fouquier, Parisian medical professor.
