Totem pole

Pachycereus schottii v. monstrose

These huge columnar cacti may grow up to 15 feet high.
They normally bloom in spring or early summer. The flowers are so small you almost have to look twice to see that the cactus is even blooming. I'll try to show a close up of the bud and bloom. This is most difficult for the photographer because the blooms are at the 10 foot level.
