I need to get starting on collecting some of these. I saw some at the nursery and they are beautiful. I saw an ad for a yellow one.

This cactus is over 20 years old and has been divided twice. It stands a lot of punishment with dry summers. I never watered it from May to October. I havenever seen so many blooms. Its just thrilling.
I dont put it outside in summer anymore. Its attractive to spiders in late summer and hard to movearound. The branches tend to break easily.

We are in Zone 6a with bitter freezing winters and tons of snow.Cold nights until late May and cold nights again in September.Its just not good for the cactus
