Large Cardon Cactus
The genus Pachycereus contains some of the largest growing cacti of all. One species is reported to reach a height of 82 feet (25m) in height! Although not all species are quite that large, all of them are columnar and feature tree-like or shrubby growth with relatively large branches.
Stems are ribbed and may be either a blue-green or bright green color.
Flowers are are small tubes or funnels up to 4 inches long. The floral tubes feature scales and may be bare, fuzzy, or spiney. Fruits are dehiscent and fleshy.
In Mexico and nearby Central America where all species are found, there are entire forests of Pachycereus. Yet, it seems there is very little interest in these plants are cactus lovers who visit these areas, seem to ignore the towering giants in search of the small globose species which hide themselves among the rocks.
