    Blooming in the Sonoran Desert

    Ive always liked cactus, and after we moved out to the Phoenix area from the East Coast I've had the opportunity to actually grow some outside. Ive been eying the photos in the CP threads and though I would post a few of the desert plants that are currently blooming in my front yard:

    Astrophytum myriostigma Bishops Cap:


    Baileya multiradiata Desert-marigold:


    Calliandra eriophylla Fairy Duster


    Aloe barbadensis Aloe vera, Medicinal aloe


    Fouquieria splendens Ocotillo


    Fouquieria splendens Ocotillo (just about ready to burst open)

    JLAP thanks. The Aloe is one of the few plants that survived the move out here. We had it in a 6 pot and it was maybe 6 tall. After its been in the ground a few years its now spread out into a 3x3 area guess its pretty happy.

    As my other plants bloom Ill add more photos here.

    Plenty of nice stuff there - i like the Berlandiera lyrata - here I grow Cosmos atrosangiunius which also smells of choclate.

    Best regards
