Friday Floral – Pink Hedgehog Cactus

This pink hedgehog cactus in full bloom was tucked away along a trail at the Desert Botanical Garden.  The garden waters all of the flora and fauna in the garden, so every spring you are sure to see an array of color throughout the garden.  Cactus flowers can be found along all the trails in the garden and bloom at different times.  Some bloom during the day while others bloom at night.  This particular cactus blooms during the day.  Hedgehog cactus also bloom in a vibrant orange.
