This is another unique cactus in my backyard.
The cactus is called Cleistocactus Strausii and it comes from Argentina and Bolivia.
The cactus is white and hairy and grows quite tall. My current cactus is over three feet in height.
Once a year, this cactus will produce these tubular, maroon colored flowers.
You can see how unusual it looks to have these perpendicular swirling pink flowers growing out the side of the tall white cactus.
The flowers also have a thin furry white hair on them.
The second photo provides a close up so you can also see the tiny yellow flower at the end.
The third photo shows what one of the flowers looks like as it falls from the cactus to the ground.
Today is Sunday so that means new travel photos. Check out the Recoleta Cemetary in Buenos Aires, Argentina at Viva la Voyage!
