Columnar Cacti design and application suggestions:

Columnar cacti are impactful and dramatic. Frame an entryway, put one in an office corner that is just screaming for something interesting or if you are lucky to live in a suitable outdoor environment, install a few columnar cacti in the landscape for dramatic effect. Our columnar cacti are equally happy in a decorative pot or planted in the ground.

Our columnar cacti offer you different colors and growth forms. The totem pole and curiosity cacti have very interesting growth habits. The Mexican fence post, peruvian apple, organ pipe, saguaro and senita offer elegance and presence. The curiosity cacti, silver and golden torch offer splashes of color to integrate with your space.

Why purchase our Columnar Cacti?

Our columnar cacti are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our columnar cacti present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your columnar cacti and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

Great healthy Seguaro

Looks good and healthy. Well packed! Thank you! I would have like recommendations & instructions for planting though :) but great plant. We are very happy.

Beautiful Saguaro

I was very happy with my 4’ delivered saguaro. The plant was exactly as promised. The packaging was incredible, but UPS ignored the very obvious “this end up” signs (in fact, they wheeled it up my driveway upside down), so there was a little damage to the top of the saguaro. Hopefully that damage will be inconsequential in the long run, however.

Very pleased with my saguaro. Well packed and shipped fast. I will be back for more

Great customer service!

Our orders always arrive in great condition, however our last order was missing one item. I sent a quick email notifying The Cactus Outlet and received a fast response (even though this was during the weekend when they were closed). I couldn’t be more impressed. My missing item has been shipped. My loyalty is with the Cactus Outlet!
