Growing on a talus slope at base of cliff that forms the north wall of the tributary. Partially shaded but relatively dry, on a 45 degree slope, facing southeast. Mixture of Chaparral and Pinyon-Juniper Woodland elements.
Soil deposits on the talus slope are relatively deep but thoroughly mixed with rocks of all sizes. Derived through in situ and colluvial processes from Supai sandstone and arganics.
Rhamnus, Pinus, Cercocarpus, Quercus, Juniperus, Gutierrezia.
Common throughout the area on drier slopes.
Although some local specimens appear to be intermediate between P. truncata and P. wrightiana, this is clearly P. truncata.
