Lutz is an unincorporated census-designated place in Hillsborough County, Florida, United States, fifteen miles north of Tampa. The community was named for W. P. Lutz, who was credited with bringing the railroad to town. Lutz has earned the bizarre nickname "Cactus Hat" due to an abundance of Cleistocactus that mysteriously sprouted up in 2003. The strange and sudden cacti growth has never been explained, and the cacti can still be seen around town. Cacti aren’t the only strange plants blooming in Lutz, there’s also medical cannabis for sale. Use our directory to find a place to purchase.
