ladyfinger cactus, Echinocereus pentalophus

Cacti are certainly among the flashier flowers. This one is particularly easy to grow, so you get to see it here. Appreciating wild flowers in cultivation is particularly easy in February in Michigan. These two inch blooms were on display at Matthaei Gardens at the University of Michigan. They grow wild along the Rio Grande in southern Texas. 2/28/12.
