whether we like to admit it to ouselves or not—

must with our roots rise out of the earth

in order to bloom in the ether and to bear fruit.”

When most people think of cactus in the Sonoran Desert, the image that comes to mind is the giant saguaro cactus. 
The saguaro grows only in the Sonoran Desert is one of the largest cacti. The saguaro cactus is a symbol of the American Southwest. 
Its inner meaning expresses the idea of standing tall, adapting to the environment, and providing shelter and nourishment for others.
Given its stature and authority, it holds a grandfatherly type of wisdom. 

Because saguaros are so common in the Tucson area, it is home to one of this nation’s national parks, the Saguaro National Park. 
However, it is not the most common cactus in the Sonoran Desert. That honor goes to the little pincushion cactus. 
Being so small and often in the shadows of the giant saguaro, their chances of being noticed are slim unless they are blooming.

The monsoon season has begun the second-hottest and second-driest on record in Arizona, where heat records
are frequently broken last year. The last two years have seen fewer desert downpours, an important source of
summer river flow.

“We’re dealing with a rapidly changing climate that is becoming, overall, more dry and varied and warmer,”
said Scott Wilbor, an ecologist in Tucson who studies desert river ecosystems, including the San Pedro.
“We are in uncharted territory.” Click here to learn about the importance of Sonoran Desert rivers.
