The magnificent Saguaro Cactus, the state flower of Arizona, is composed of a tall, thick, fluted, columnar stem, 18 to 24 inches in diameter, often with several large branches (arms) curving upward in the most distinctive conformation of all Southwestern cacti. Creamy-white, 3-inch-wide flowers with yellow centers bloom in spring in May and June. Clustered near the ends of branches, the blossoms open during cooler desert nights and close again by next midday. The sweet, ruby-colored fruit matures by late June. Photographed in Green Valley, Arizona, USA.
