I have never seen so many cactuses in my life—until I visited the lovely Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona. Boy, strolling and spending three hours around the garden wasn’t enough. There are so many kinds of cactus to see, of different shapes, variety, colours and spines!
I didn’t even know that some cactuses can bear flowers! Really?! Yes, really! I’ve seen it in my own eyes and I can’t even believe they’ve got flowers! Oh well, that only shows I’m not made to live in a desert. 😉
I’d recommend you visit the botanical garden around 4 pm or when the temperature begins to cool off a bit. If you really want to get up close and personal by getting more information as much as you can, check their website for tours which is including in your ticket.
These 20 photos are just some of the few varieties of cactuses you’ll find inside the Garden.
