Trichocereus flowers

Trichocereus hybrids, sometimes called torch cacti, put on magnificent displays of large, brilliant flowers in early May. Collectors will throw impromptu parties when all their plants bloom on the same day. Although Trichocereus is not native to the U.S. (they are from South America) you can see them blooming all over Tucson in gardens, yards, containers and office buildings.
