The Sinningia tubifloras are blooming like mad right now. Wow!

Perhaps I'll see some of you this next Sunday. We're hosting the June meeting of the Oregon Cactus & Succulent Society at 4:30 pm here at the nursery next Sunday, June 28. We'll be sharing a potluck meal, I'll be sharing a program on Haworthias and in general we'll have a good time. We'd be glad to have you join us: 7009 N. Fiske Ave in North Portland.

We received this plant with the following moniker: Lobivia haematantha var. rebutioides subsp. sublimiflora which is also known as Lobivia rebutioides var. sublimiflora (Backeb. ex Wessner) Backeb. or, simply Echinopsis densispina (Werderm.)Whatever it is, what flowers!

No, this isn't a garden in Tucson; it's in the Portland, Oregon metro area. Mark Burgess has created a beautiful garden which includes many cacti and succulents which many would assume couldn't survive outside in our climate: Agave 'Green Goblet', Echinocereus rigidissimus subsp. rubispinus and E. rigidissimus albispina to name a few. Plus, of course, a wide variety of chollas and other opuntias. Good job, Mark!

This morning I'm posting a double-header. Well, they're not on the same plant..., but this is a photo of both 'Buttercup' and 'Stormy Weather' blooming at the same time. I never get tired of these!

We don't have a large collection of Epies, and they don't really fit in to our desert plant greenhouses, and at this time of year we generally wish we had room for a whole lot more! I'll be posting a few photos we've been taking over the last couple of weeks, beginning with 'Red Rocket', and what a beauty.
