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!

Saguaro Cactus

This came packaged very well, it’s a very healthy plant, it was perfect

Bridgett R Moyer

During our recent visit to Arizona our daughter was going crazy over the cactus with the Saguaro being her favorite. We couldn’t take one back to Florida on a plane so ordering from The Cactus Outlet was the perfect option. The plant arrived promptly and packaged perfectly to transfer to a pot upon arrival. The price was great and the size of the plant was a bonus.

Saguaro purchase for San Antonio delivery

This was a gift. The plant came on time, was protected very well for shipping, and it looked great (better than I expected).

Waiting on it to grow larger and larger

I wish I could fast forward time... I can't wait any longer to see how tall my saguaro grows. The description said they can be up to 30ft tall. WOW.
