  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the purple against the orange and red containers. Cactus blossoms are so beautiful and now it looks like my cholla has its first bloom ever – I can’t wait to see what color it will be.

  2. The purple is a great color, perfect for your garden!

    Sure beautiful,will they grow in BC ,if you keep them under a canopy during our rainy season,or do they real hot weather?

    • You know, Popsi, I bet in a pot with a lot of decomposed granite mixed in the dirt for added drainage may just work!!!! Come get some!!!! – xericstyle
