    When many people think of the Southwest, they think of a dry desert filled with prickly cacti. Although these green spiky plants may not seem as obviously beautiful as say a rose or a tulip, anyone who has witnessed a cactus spring and summer blooms will no longer think they arent breathtaking. In shades of yellow, white, pink, purple, orange and red, these desert flowers are truly something to see. With spring in full bloom, take a hike and check out these simply stunning cacti. No other cactus is more synonymous with Southwestern Arizona and the Sonoran Desert than the saguaro cactus. Its bloom is the state flower of Arizona. In fact, the Sonoran Desert is the only place this iconic cactus grows at all. This ubiquitous desert cactus is a giant, reaching anywhere from 10 to 50 feet in height. In fact, its the largest cactus in the United States. But this cactus grows slowlyonly about an inch a year. The tallest saguaros are thought to be some 200 years old. Because the majority of a saguaro is made up of water, an adult plant may weigh 6 tons or more. Saguaros are easily recognized by their trademark arms. Some saguaros have been seen with a multitude of arms, while others dont grow any at all. In Saguaro National Park outside of Tucson, saguaros begin to grow arms at about 65 to 75 years of age. The saguaros white and yellow flowers grow at the top of the plant and at the end of arms, blooming in May and June. These beautiful blooms open during cooler desert nights and close again by next midday. Head to Ajo, Arizona, and youll find some 28 species of cacti in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, which encompasses some 330,000 acres of surprisingly green desert. The parks namesake cactus grows in tall columns and can be found in large clumps within the park. The organ pipe can live for more than 150 years and produces its first flowers at about age 35. Just as with the saguaro cactus, the organ pipe opens its creamy white flowers only at night and closes the flower by midday the following day. So be sure to get to the desert early if you want to see these blooms! Other cacti youll see in Organ Pipe Monument include senita, chain fruit cholla, teddy bear cholla, Engelmanns prickly pear, hedgehog, pincushion, and Arizona barrel. One of the more common cacti in the Sonoran Desert is the prickly pear cactus. With its flat, round pads that look like leaves, the prickly pear cactus has large spines on its stems. The prickly pear varies in height from less than a foot to 6 or 7 feet and the flowers range in color from yellow, red, or purple, according to the

    different varieties. Among the frequent types found in the Sonoran Desert are the beavertail cactus (bright rose flowers), Englemanns prickly pear (yellow to peach flowers), and the pancake prickly pear (yellow and red flowers). Grahams pincushion or Grahams nipple cactus is a small cactus (usually only about 5 cm across and 15 cm in height) that grows bright pink to lavender flowers which appear to overwhelm this little plant. Pincushions thrive between rocks throughout the desert. Look for them between late spring and summer. In late summer, usually in August, a show of deep orange is seen with the blooming of the fishhook barrel cactus, also known as the candy barrel cactus. Named because of its cylindrical or barrel-like shape, this cactus bears clusters of flowers at its top, which are red and yellow in hue, and are covered in spines. Even the sweetly named teddy bear cholla, with its mass of spines that appear fuzzy from a distance, boasts greenish-white flowers in the spring. Just keep your distance as the spines are said to jump off the cacti to passersby. Hazards aside, be sure to soak up all the amazing colors of spring and summer in our Sonoran Desert!
