Saguaros Are Blooming PDF Print E-mail

Have you noticed?  The saguaros around the Old Pueblo have begun to bloom.   The saguaro cacti we planted around our yard 25 years ago are developing flower buds at the top of the plant.    The saguaro blossom has white  waxy flowers with white or yellow centers.  It blooms at night, though you may see some open flower buds during daytime hours, too.    The bees like them.  The Saguaro Blossom is the State Flower of Arizona.  The flowers that get pollinated later produce red fruit.  It is sometimes used in making jelly or syup.  Local birds and critters also like to feast on them.   

Enjoy the display;  it should be going on for several more weeks.    Oh, by the way, have you noticed the Palo Verde trees are also starting to bloom?   Those lovely yellow flowers put on such a display!  Springime in the desert is so beautiful!

Now would be a great time to take a drive through either one of the Saguaro National Parks.
