saguaroCacti are a memorable part of Tucson's flora -- in more ways than one. People look at Saguaros and see human figures. And you will never forget the cactus that "jumped out" and got you. Columnar cacti (such as the Saguaro), along with leguminous trees, characterize the Sonoran Desert. To learn more about cacti, go to the Cactus Family page.
