Wednesday’s Flower: Zygocactus

Zygocactus / Christmas cactus / Schlumbergera

Zygocactus, Christmas cactus, Schlumbergera: no matter what you call this cactus, the flowers are stunning. It always amazes me that such a plain plant produces such incredible flowers. These photos are of the first open flower this year on my plant.

This is my first post in a regular Wednesday feature when I’ll look at flowers that are beautiful, unusual, strange or just catch my eye.
