    And another idea would be a Dragon Fruit Cactus, Which is a tropical/subtropical cactus that could occur in Jungle biomes.

    This is a great idea! I would LOVE to see this in the game. You are right, the desert is really boring right now, just like the ocean until the aquatic update. We need another update like that to the desert.

    Along with this, you could implement saguaros. 

    Here's a minor point- I live in Colorado, which is technically a "High Plains desert"- which means it's dry but not that dry. It's not your typical sand desert- there's a lot of scrub and grass. Anyway, my point is, there's prickly pears all over Colorado- even in the mountains. So, if smaller ones grew in various other biomes (Plains, or a dry plains variant, extreme hills (?)), it would be fairly realistic.

    A saguaro would be a pretty easy modification of the existing cactus, and both prickly pears and saguaros could be grown off the chorus tree model like you said.

    Anyway, to sum up: There's at least one other kind of cactus that could be added, and prickly pears don't have to be limited to deserts.

    Here's another idea for a desert plant- Juniper trees/bushes. I believe they're technically a tree, but they're very short (And very dark green). I was in Moab, Utah last year, and they were all over the place. It was a nice splash of green against the red sandstone, and I think they would be a good addition to the badlands desert type.

    It would also be cool if they could be planted in flower pots, but the color is randomized using the same algorithm as picture frames.
