Mojave desert plant ID

Flagstaff, AZ

Can some lead me in the direction of this plant's ID from the Mojave desert east of Joshua Tree National Park? It appears to be in a dried out hibernation state, but i can't remember seeing one "alive" though a feeling of purple flowers seems reminiscent. Sometimes they are in little communities of up to a dozen, maybe reproducing as clones underground like the mojave yucca? It's anywhere from 4 to 12inches high and inch across at the fattest part of the "flower". For now it I will just go on calling them Dr. Suess plants haha. Thanks everybody for you help, I am more of a reptile/amphibian guy so if any of yall have questions about some of you're local scaly friends i'd be glad to try and help.
