Christmas Cactus


Our Christmas Cactuses are getting starting to bloom. Perhaps you have one too.

They are an interesting plant, with a different shape, a cascading set of flat segmented branches that project a bright red bloom around Christmas each year.

Barbara’s dad grew a dozen large plants on the front porch for years. We took some cuttings from him a long time back and have been growing them since.

We’ve added several varieties as well, including several Thanksgiving Cactuses. These bloom about a month earlier. And Barbara tells me there is an Easter Cactus, which blooms in the Spring.

Some are red, some are white, some are pink, some are salmon colored. Amazing.

These plants bring a big smile to our faces each year. God has provided such variety and beauty.
