Saguaros grow in the desert country of southern Arizona, nearby Mexico and parts of eastern California.  Saguaros are as much as 50 feet tall and 2 feet wide at the base.  Saguaros grow slowly, larger ones are nearly 200 years old. Saguaros take advantage of rare rainfall being able to store large amounts of water...there may be up to 10 tons in the soggy central column.

Saguaros help to support a wondrous community of desert life.  Unfortunately about half the population of the prickly plants has died off.  Many of these are stolen by "cactus rustlers".  The browning of the outer dkin and loss of spines are thought to be from air pollution.
