Wonders of America USPS - Tallest Cactus

Tallest Cactus, Saguaro

The saguaro cactus, symbol of the American Southwest, can grow taller than a five-story building. One record-breaking specimen in Arizona reached a height of nearly 60 feet. A saguaro grows slowly; a ten-year-old plant may be less than 6 inches high.
