The Mysterious Crested Saguaro

The Mysterious Crested Saguaro takes an in-depth look into this extremely rare mutation of the saguaro cactus. In 2016, still little is known about what causes this strange growth or how often it occurs. A small group call the Crested Saguaro Society started photographing and documenting all the crested saguaros they could find. Their work has reshaped our knowledge and understanding of the cactus.
