More about Cacti

Cacti are native to the Americas, being found as far south as Patagonia and up into western Canada. (The Rhipsalis baccifera is the exception here, as it is also found in Africa and Sri Lanka.) Cacti are found mainly in extremely dry environments, and that is common in Mesa, Gilbert, and Queen Creek. With their sharp spines and lack of leaves they stand as a sort of tribute to harshness of the environment for which they are born. Cacti add a natural, appropriate look to any desert landscape, and are useful landscape plants as we try to conserve water here in the east Phoenix desert.
