“A Late Blooming Cactus”


Description from Little Round Chick: This morning when I went out to check my big tall cactus I discovered it had finally bloomed. Absolutely unbelievable! I've had this plant for 8 or 9 years and this is the first time it has bloomed. When the buds first started forming they looked like little green balls. The three attached photos show the progress from bud to flower.

    Amazing!!! Thanks for sharing these photos and your terrific pick with us, LRC! For those of us in the Midwest, this is totally cool!!! I’ve been “out West” on vacation, but this is just incredible to me that you could have a cactus in your yard! :D

    I think this plant is about 10 feet tall and it may grow quite a bit more.

    I was blown away when I saw all of the blossoms were open at one time.

    Most cactus have gorgeous flowers Leigh. The plants may not look to inviting but the flowers are fantastic. :)

    Ditto Lynn! I am amazed! Is this a saguaro? It is beautiful!

    I don’t think it is a saguaro, Valentine Chick. I really don’t know just what variety it is. My start came from a neighbor who didn’t know what it was either.
