Originally from central Mexico, this succulent loves well-drained soil and full-sun, Given that they can grow to 10 feet tall, a cactus makes a dramatic statement in a southwest style yard. Surround with metallic or stone detailing and accents, and the southwest comes alive right on your back patio.
