Desert Rose ~

When I did a little bit of research on this cactus, several different species came up under the same name: Desert Rose (Bangkok Kalachuchi). I found only one photo that looked the same as the one in my photo, so I hope I am naming this pretty cactus flower properly. 


  1. Thank you, Terri and Carol . . . they are even more lovely in person. I have never seen a desert rose . . . couldn't resist the photo!

  2. I've never seen a desert rose before but I were naming it I can't think of a better name! Nice pic!

  3. Thank you, Jasia. When I first saw this flower, I just couldn't imagine it being called anything else! Very different yet wonderful.
