Arizona Flora

The most conspicuous plants in the Arizona desert are the Saguaro Cactus (Carnegiea gigantea, german: Saguaro, french: Saguaro) and its smaller relatives, the Fishhook Barrel Cactus (Ferocactus wislizeni) and the California Barrel Cactus (Ferocactus cylindraceus). The Barrel Cacti are also called Compass Barrel Cacti, because of their tendency to grow leaning south. Younger ones look somewhat similar, but are easily distinguished by their spines. The Saguaro has straight spines that are white to gray. The Fishhook Barrel and California Barrel spines have red/purple/pink stems, with curved yellow tips. The tips of the spines of the Fishhook Barrel are curved stronger than the spines of the California Barrel. The Barrel cacti grow to a maximum height of about 2-3 m (7-10 ft). The Saguaro can grow to a height of almost 20 m (70 ft). If the cactus has side arms, it is a Saguaro, the Barrel cacti only have a straight stem, no side arms. The Saguaros are slow growing, they take between 20 and 50 years to reach a height of 1 m (3 ft), and can grow to 200 years old.
