Variations in Form
One of the most fascinating things about plants is the huge variety in their form. Cactus are foremost in this variety. Some of the shapes are so bizarre that you cannot really tell how or why the plant is growing in that way. This particular plant may be a unique specimen. It seems incredible that such a plant would grow commonly out in the wild, but every time I think this, I find that there are thousands of these plants somewhere in America. It has been interesting to wander about here in Utah and say hello to some of our cactus friends. Oh, by the way, this plant is growing in Arizona and probably came from somewhere else.
