There is nothing more iconic Arizona than saguaro cacti growing along Camelback mountain. These impressive gentle giants native to the Sonoran Desert can take upwards of 50 years to sprout a single arm, grow up to 40 feet tall and can live up to 200 years.
Their most beautiful feature though may be their sweet, waxy white flowers that bloom in late spring, carpeting the desert in stunning flower crowns. Despite their short-lived display of beauty, often only opening for 24 hours, they contribute to other desert wildlife by providing sweet nectar to bees, moths, hummingbirds and lesser long-nosed bats, who help pollinate the flowers and turn them into ripe red fruits.
Visiting or living in the Sonoran Desert is synonymous with appreciating the copious mountains covered in these cactus beauties.
