Plant Highlights

This cactus has beautiful magenta flowers that appear every spring. It would make a great addition to a desert garden because of the showstopping color. It needs well draining soil as well as full sun and little to no water. It grows to about 6 ft. and would be a great addition to a bird garden as well.
