Artist's Description

Saguaro National Park
Tucson, Arizona, USA

Saguaro Cactus are found in the Sonoran Desert of southeastern California, southern Arizona and northwestern Mexico.
They produce beautiful creamy-white, 3” flowers with yellow centers in May and June. The flowers are near the ends of branches in clusters. They open during cooler desert nights and close again by next midday.
The Saguaro is an amazing plant. I found it interesting that they often begin life in the shelter of what is called a “nurse” tree or shrub, often Mesquite, which can provide shade and shelter the “babies”. They grow very slow, like an inch a year. They can grow to be 50 feet tall; the largest plants being 200 years old!
We were lucky as we just happened to be visiting the park while the Saguaro and many other cactus species were blooming. It was a real treat albeit we found out my husband who doesn’t suffer from allergies in our northern home, had allergies to the blooming cactus! From talking to others, it isn’t an unusual reaction.
