No one can deny that one of the main fascinations with Cacti and Succulents is the astounding variety and beauty of their flowers. Infinitely designed and colored, often breathtaking, they are the Cacti and Succulent enthusiasts reward for growing them well. Sometimes suttle and sweet like the delicate blooms of Avonia and Myrtillocactus, and often bold and colorful like Eriosyce senilis, these flowers are truly beautiful! I hope you enjoy the gallery below. I sure have enjoyed raising some of these plants and taking the pictures.
