My Peanut Cactus in Bloom.


All of my indoor plants spend the summers outdoors. Lots of growth happens before they go dormant.
Cactus and succulent plants reveled in this year's summer-long heatwave and drought. They also flowered like crazy.
Prickly Pear Cactus is cold hardy to Zone 5, so they live in my garden beds over the winter.
The cacti are treated as annuals and brought indoors for winter. Watering is cut back to about once a month for cactus.

Hard to believe that hummingbirds would hover over a cactus.

container plantingss, in windowboxes, and in hanging baskets. Fast grower.
