Our Favorite Cactus Flowers

Flowering Torch Cactus (Trichocereus grandiflora hybrid)

This is one of the showiest cactus flowers you will ever find. They come in a variety of colors and can be up to 8 inches across!

Argentine Giant (Trichocereus candicans)

Extra large white flowers are fragrant and open at night. It will clump by producing offsets at the base and has a naturally sprawling habit,

Peruvian Apple (Cereus peruvianus)

A beautiful blue columnar cactus that provides a strong focal point for desert gardens and does well in containers too. May come as a straight stem, knobby (monstrose) or twisted.

Easter Lily Cactus (Echinopsis oxygona)

Once you’ve seen their flower you will always be able to spot an Easter Lily Cactus. The showy blooms rise from the white spine-jeweled ribs of this clump-forming, cylinder-shaped green cactus in spring. More mature plants will produce offsets. Bloom color can vary from deep pink to almost white.

Beavertail (Opuntia basilaris)

Sonoran desert native with blue/grey paddles shaped like beaver tails. Although it looks spineless it does poses tiny spines, called glochids,that are located in the paddles dots.

Black Spine Prickly Pear (Opuntia macrocentra)

This prickly pear looks a lot like a purple Santa Rita Prickly Pear but it’s flowers are a little extra fancy. Bright yellow blooms with deep red centers adorn this prickly pear that will stay a little smaller than the Santa Rita.

Claret Cup (Trichocereus triglochidatus)

One of the most attractive hedgehogs. When they bloom bright red-orange flowers often cover the whole plant and last for several days. Large plants with many stems in full flower make breathtaking mounds of scarlet.

Pincushion (Mammillaria species)

This is a genus of cactus with over 200 known species. They are generally smaller growing cacti and may be solitary or clumping. They typically have white spines and pink flower. Small red fruits follow the flowers and are edible!

Queen of the Night (Peniocereus greggii)

This is the same species that you can see at Tohono Chul’s annual Bloom Night celebration. In nature they typically grow beneath a mesquite or creosote and use it as protection and to support it’s sprawling habit. The flowers bloom at night and are fragrant but sadly only last one night. However, once you see them you will believe it is worth the wait.
