Carnegia gigantea

Carnegia gigantea is probably the one plant every cactus aficionado aware of, but only a few can say they own a flowering specimen. Plants are a bit slow but not difficult - that is if you live in Arizona and have a back yard to plant it. Flowering size of about 8 ft is reached in some 50 years from seed.
Flowers of Saguaro are large and beautiful, but taking a picture is always a challenge - because the plants are so tall, and bloom from the apex, the stem top that is.
