Kitts Peak Cacti

Post Number:#1  Postby Arizona Agave » Wed May 17, 2017 10:09 pm

Greg Starr and I went up to check on the Agave Blooms, No blooms yet. Here's a few Cacti shots. Not sure about the Prickly Pear's. Marty

hmm was going to say I liked the agave in this region but the photos disappeared or I was looking at a different thread. It is early... I will have more caffeine. Thanks for sharing!

edit: I WAS in the wrong forum. But in my defense, they both had the words Kitts Peak... Will definitely grab that coffee! :oops:

The last picture looks a lot like Opuntia chlorotica to me.

Perhaps Peter will know what it is... ::wink::

That would be cool if someone knows what the Prickly Pears are. MM

I'd say O. chlorotica. You're about 3-4 weeks from blooms up there....
Agave
"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".
