Re: Some spring color in my neighborhood

If you like organ pipe cactus - try getting some Marshallocereus (Stenocereus) thurberi var. littoralis. I was fortunate enough to obtain some from 'cabo' many years ago. They are a dwarf that blooms when less than 2' high. The color is a dark pink, and they stay open till almost noon. I don't know if they are pollinated by bats like the common variety.
Great pics (as usual)!
