Friday Floral – Bishops Cap

This week I chose to share the cactus flower on the Bishops Cap cactus for my Friday Floral post.  Bishops Cap (Astrophytum myriostigma) is on the endangered species list and is native to Mexico.  The first time I saw this cactus it reminded me of a pincushion.

All three of these images were made at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona.  You may click on each of the images below to see a larger view.

      Thank you! Even with watering, they looked a little sad. I saw some at Boyce Thompson Arboretum that looked much healthier, but they weren’t blooming.
