Cephalocereus senilis


Description: 

A tall, columnar species with clusters of stems that may grow to 15-40ft tall; the individual stems are usually un-branched. The most striking feature is the shaggy coat of long, white hairs suggestive of unkempt hair on an old man. The coat is a particularly striking silvery white on the young cactus; as the plant ages the stem begins to lose its covering. The flowers are red, yellow, or white, though the plant may not flower until 10–20 years old
