Hmmm… I thought I had a bunch of really cool pictures of flowering cacti, but I only have a few. These are more pics from our recent trip to UC-Berkeley’s Botanical Garden.
This cool dude is from Bolivia. Random fact: it was named after botanist and director of the botanical garden of Palermo, Italy Antonio Borzi. I’m loving the crazy bursts of red flowers.
This one’s kind of scrawny. I couldn’t find any exciting random facts about this guy. Sounds like it’s pretty easy to grow if you live in Phoenix.
It’s not a cactus, but I thought I’d throw it in. It was hiding in the cacti pics. When you dig out three agaves it means you can get three new (smaller) ones to replace right? These guys only get three feet wide.
