Resplendant Cholla

Apart from their fearsome spiny reputation the various cholla species are not the most flamboyant of plants, that is until they burst into flower. This one was smothered in blooms and the hummingbirds were loving it.

Hi Celeste

This is a lovely plant, the colours are wonderful, and if it attracts hummingbirds as well what a plus.

I totally agree Eileen, while I am happy to put up feeders I am always pleased to have native plants in the yard that provide what the birds need.

You are so right Guy. Although I occasionally fall foul of their fearsome spines, I do love having lots of different Chollas in my yard.
