Ferocactus hamatacanthus / Texas barrel cactus
A recent cactus fiend
After missing the bloom in early June, I was quite disappointed, but it appears the Trichocereus lobivia hybrid, commonly called a flying saucer cactus for its massive blooms, has decided to give me another one.
…and with these last two non-cactus shots, our tour of Timberline Gardens has come to a close. I felt like I took many more photos than I apparently did. Now, I need to sort back through them and my mental notes, and decide what cuttings I would like to add to my collection.
For those of you in the U.S., you couldn’t find a nice guy to buy from - seriously. And if you’re not exactly sure what would work for you, email Kelly and he would be more than happy to assist you in choosing the best species for your locale:
(This is a completely unsolicited plug for him. Visiting and touring his gardens only reaffirmed the encounters I have had via email and previous online orders)
