Saguaro National Park Tucson, AZ. It takes up to 75 years for a Saguaro to grow one side arm. Most grow 40-60 ft high with a 10 foot girth and may live for more than 150 years. Enjoy the beauty and wildlife: road runners, coyote, bats, quail, scorpions and beautiful flowers on the way to the Sonora Desert Museum.
Really? There Are Scorpions Here?
Info on scorpions - how to prevent and avoid them and how to treat a sting if you have one
Lavender - Scorpion Repellent. Plant some lavender around your property and see no more scorpions. Lavender grows easily in Arizona. Looks nice and works great! Also use some organic lavender oil inside the house. I NEVER see scorpions anymore! Enjoy! #Lavender #Scorpions
Thought this was a desert? It's a magic carpet of purple wildflowers (but these Scorpion Weeds come with their own bite)
The cracks in the parched earth are clearly visible, but for a few short weeks - every few years - this remote section of desert is transformed into a magic carpet of purple. The wildflower Scorpion Weed takes over this corner of the Mojave Desert in southwestern Utah when the conditions are right.
