The Old Man

This type of cactus is commonly called an Old Man Cactus because of the white furry modified spines. There are a number of species and varieties that fall into this category and most of them are from Guanajuato and Hildalgo States in Mexico. the scientific name is Cephalocereus senillis.  We have a very large specimen growing in our front yard.
