Saguaro Cactus...The official state flower of Arizona aptly called "monarch of the desert". The largest cacti in the United States, the Saguaro is the signature plant of the Sonoran Desert. Its uniquely beautiful creamy white flowers open after nightfall during May and close by late afternoon. The Tohono O'odham Native Americans prize the fruit for jellies and beverages. The skin is smooth and waxy, the trunk and stems have stout, 2-inch spines clustered on their ribs. When water is absorbed, the outer pulp of the Saguaro Cactus can expand like an accordion.
