Saguaro Cactus

This slow-growing majestic cactus is unique to the Sonoran Desert, which stretches across southern Arizona and California and northern Mexico. The saguaro can grow to over 40 feet tall and can live over 150 years. The cactus produces white blooms from April to May and red fruit in June.
