Every year I'm pleasantly surprised when these blossoms open. But why? They've done it every year for at least eight or ten - ever since a friend gave me a cutting. This cactus is a native of the Canadian Prairies. - a climate that is often colder than Ontario where I live.
Another much-appreciated garden bloomer!
An annual fringed poppy
Although this is an annual it comes back every year. It seeds prolifically, which is GREAT since I love them.
