Carnegia Gigantea (Saguaro Cactus)
The saguaro cactus has been described as the
monarch of the Sonoran Desert, as a prickly horror,
as the supreme symbol of the American Southwest, and
as a plant with personality.
The Saguaro is renowned for the variety of
odd, all-too-human shapes it assumes, shapes that inspire
wild and fanciful imaginings.
Saguaro are found only in the Sonoran desert.
The giant saguaro is the king of cacti. A full-grown
saguaro is usually more than 35 feet in height and is
at least 75 years old, sometimes reaching a height of
50 feet and life span of 200 years. Some have arms but
all are green and have a wax-like skin that helps prevent
water loss. Rare and endangered this extraordinary giant
cactus has been protected within Saguaro National Park
since 1933 .
