Many Other Plants For Sale

The golden barrel cactus for sale are also very nice, field-grown plants, with a gorgeous yellowish-orange spine color in the centers where the new spines are forming, grading to clear lemon-yellow on mature spines that have grown out to the sides of the plant. We offer these golden barrels in the following sizes and prices:

  • 5-inch diameter plant - $15.00
  • 6-inch diameter plant - $20.00
  • 7-inch diameter plant - $25.00

Note: All sizes are the plant's body only - spines are not included in the measurements. On occasion larger golden barrels are available, but they are a come-and-go proposition and as such we do not list them as always available. Just ask, and if you want to be placed on a waiting list for the next good larger one that surfaces, we will be happy to accommodate you.

Barrel cactus

Barrel cactus are the most popular when they are between the size of a cantaloupe and an average-sized seedless watermelon, and present less of a shipping problem, since they are more compact. Barrel cactus prices run from $10 to $100, and dimensions range from about 4” across and under a pound in weight to as much as 24" tall and 60 pounds in weight. Ask us if you seek one that you are not seeing listed. Shipping a barrel cactus can be anywhere from $12 to $60; of course the wide range is the result of variables in size and distance and we can give a more accurate quote when we know more about your particulars.

Payment methods accepted are cash, check, money order, or PayPal. There is no order form on this website, since maintaining a current and accurate inventory and automatic ordering list would be prohibitively time-consuming. We ask you to Contact General Manager Jan Emming or by phone at (928) 766-2597 to discuss your needs in person. Once we have determined what you need and that we can help you, we will arrange payment via one of the methods above.

We are constantly evolving and adding to what we grow and sell here at D:FR, so if you are interested in finding a plant that is not on the list provided here, please write us and ask about it by emailing Jan Emming. You can also call (928) 766-2597 if you prefer. We do not have an automated order form on this website due to the highly variable and individualized nature of what we carry, so either write or call to discuss your order with a real person. Shipping and freight charges vary widely and are strongly dependent upon the size of the plant and its weight, as well as the distance it needs to be sent relative to Arizona. Payment is accepted via cash, check, money order, Venmo, or PayPal.

We cannot sell saguaros larger than about 36 inches tall via mail because of weight limitations. If you live within a few hundred miles of Northwest Arizona and desire a large and mature saguaro cactus for outdoor or landscape applications (more than 4 to 5 feet tall) email us for specifics on how to go about getting one and the costs. See the Saguaros For Sale page for more detailed information on saguaro cactus pricing.

We will be happy to provide an estimate for shipping based upon any plant that you want to have sent via mail, or by delivery in the case of larger saguaro cactus or Joshua trees. Email Jan Emming or call (928) 766-2597 to make such inquiries.

Shipping within the United States is straightforward, but shipping internationally can be complicated and very expensive. It is possible to send saguaros and other large, heavy plants overseas, but there is some risk involved of extra fees, or with import authorities refusing entry of the items into the country. We cannot be responsible for extra fees, taxes, licenses, permits, or rejection of internationally shipped plants, so be aware of the potential problems before you order.

Thank you for your support of Destination: Forever Ranch and Gardens. We look forward to serving you.
