: I have been told that cacti are native to the Americas only - is this true?
: Thanks


Hi Sharon,

Yes, it is true. That would include Canada, Central and South America as well as the US.

I did a search at www.google.com and put in quotes with a plus sign like this: "cacti" + "native to" and got over 4600 hits. Here's one that should be helpful.
