Right on schedule, my G. baldianum, or Dwarf Chin Cactus, bloomed today. I'm thrilled with this year's color, which is an orangey salmon. The flower color can vary from year to year. The flowers can have a pink, peach, or salmon hue, and this year's color is a change from last season's pink. This ability is one of the reasons this cactus is among my favorites.
Over the past 12 months, I've written about this cactus three times. I've included the post links in case anyone wants to know more about this great cactus, which once suffered a near death experience. The posts also include photos of last year's pink hued flowers.
