The blooms of the Flowering Torch Cactus are some of the most spectacular in the world. We classify these beauties as a general "hybrid", simply because they come in so many colors! From bright pink, orange, light pink, bright yellow, light yellow, red, and more, the variety is endless. These beautiful blooms are most common in the spring, but can continue throughout the summer months. The blooms are borne upon bright green, yellow-spined, columnar cactus stems that reach up to 3 ft tall. Requires no additional water once established.

*Height and width estimated for growth in the Tucson, AZ area. True sizes may vary.
