The state flower is the white blossom of the saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea), the largest cactus in the United States.
The saguaro blossoms appear on the tips of the long arms of the cactus during May and June.
Next time you go for a ride, ask your mom or dad to point out a saguaro cactus.
You can tell them the state flower grows on it in the spring!
