Here's the final roundup of blooms before the onslaught of summer. Some of these cacti may stop blooming now as their main blooming time approach it's end, while others may continue to bloom here and there throughout the summer.
The last roundup
Hi Michael, this is what got me into cacti in the first place--their flowers.
Im hoping to find some of these types locally.
Maybe HD will get some on thier next load of plants.
These were collected from many different sources including mail-order.
If I found dead then understand I have these cactus in my garden.............. These are sooooooooooo beautiful and so colorful.
Thanks for sharing.
Oh wow oh WOW! That's truly GORGEOUS!!!
I don't know my cacti very well but would love to see those flowers in MY yard next year.........what kind are they?
Those are simply beautiful - what a wonderful display of color!! Love that salmon colored bloom!!
Thanks, Kaleem! Glad to share.
Thanks, Betsy! Most of them I don't know the names to, but most are Echinopsis hybrids. I'll put some close-ups soon.
Thanks, RUK and Patti!
Thanks, Chantell! If you're talking about the one on the table, it's E. 'Fangri-la'. The one on the bottom in the first picture, I don't know the name to, but it's an echinopsis hybrid.
Thanks again, Dave!
THAT'S it!! It's just such a wonderful color!! Seems like there are always yellows and pinks (not to take away from their beauty)...so something like this really stands out. What a great shot!!
Thanks, Chantell. I'm starting to like cacti that have odd color flowers also. Something that's less common.
Thanks, Jen! I wish. Actually, in my yard, the cacti are kings and queens. I just serve them well sometimes and this is my reward. lol
Thanks, Michael! Don't be. Just enjoy!
You're kidding me?!!?? I thought "maybe" you'd adjusted the contrast a wee bit - I have to do it with some of mine so it actually looks like what my eyes saw...LOL Wow!! I'm impressed....beautiful colors!! I think I have an Epi rooting that if I remember correctly had that type of pink/red contrast...hmmm, can't wait!
Thats why I said 'almost' heh... ;^)
I dont get jealous or envious.
I am able to enjoy and be excited at others blessings
Awesome show there!!
These are simply stunning! What a collection. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Thanks, Chantell! I thinks the colors are even more brilliant on the real flowers than in photos. Yes, I've seen epis with similar colors before too. They're stunning.
Thanks, Michael! I'm just kidding. lol
Thanks, Sue! Glad to share.
Got some more that were not in my roundup photo. Will post soon.
I have that to look forward to also!!
Hey, Chantell, I think it's kind of bright and cheerful. It had several flushes like this this year. Flowers are small but plentyful.
Hi, Michael. Rebutias can be prolific bloomers if grown with plenty of light. They come in many colors also.
Hi Trent :-)
Have the same Rebutia, don't know if it's right but was marked Rebutia krainziana. Beautiful caramel colored flowers.
