White Christmas Cactus and 2 Reds

These need no explanation; they could have been a wordless Wednesday.










Of course they are Schlumbergera cultivars, not the old-fashioned Christmas Cactus of my childhood. They are too late for Thanksgiving. 

Later pink, yellow and peach will open, perhaps after Christmas. The reds are more like a shrimp color and a scarlet.

  1. The white ones are very pretty. Mine is bright red and is all set to open soon. My grandmother had a lot of these in her front window so they remind me of her.

    I might look for a white one, I like it a lot.
