The first bloom. This used to be in the Lobivia genus. Former name is Lobivia leucomalla.
This is what I meant when I say "profuse". Often sold under Lobivia leucomalla, it's former name.
The buds finally blooms. It has about 20 flowers on an 8" plant.
The flowers are at their peak. Yes, there is a cactus under all those flowers.
This pic is to proof that this is a cactus.
Showing winter stress. Flowers are beginning to form.
Had about 6 or 7 on it last week but I missed it.
This gets morning sun, blooming in early June.
