Trichocereus tersheckii (large)
Often called a South American ‘saguaro’, this species does become a giant over time. The bright green color and golden spines can be retained into it’s mature form with regular watering. They tend to bloom at about 6′ tall and the pure white blooms are huge at about 7″ across. It takes our summers and seems to be frost hardy to the low 20′s so is no sissy in the landscape. Treat it as a centerpiece or prominent focus in any planting you design. It tends to branch much lower than our saguaros and at an earlier age so has several advantages.
Size: 10-12 inch fat seedlings
