B&B Cactus Farm

Joel Smith of Tucson, a top advocate for preserving Arizona's desert, really encouraged me to visit B&B Cactus Farm on the east side of Tucson. It is one of the largest cactus retailers in the city and I was not disappointed at all with the wide variety of cacti and succulents they offered.

B&B Cactus Farm is located at 11550 East Speedway in Tucson.

Cactus Garden Near the entrance is a beautiful cactus garden with a walking path.
Prickly Pear Tree There are many variations of the prickly pear cactus, and I have been recently intrigued by the prickly pear tree. They seem to grow likes weeds out here in southern Arizona and I captured quite a few on camera while in Tombstone, Arizona.

Here are four unique and interesting cacti that "made it" among the many photos from my visit.
