Carnegiea gigantea-Saguaro

Saguaro is perhaps one of the most enduring species of the Southwest. This can reach a mature size of over 50' tall, by 25' wide. Plants in the wild will not even begin to grow arms until they are 100 years old. Once established, virtually no care is required. large, night-blooming white flowers abound between May and June. Native across the Southwest and into Mexico.
