Tristan Davis - Growing Cleistocactus in Arizona
Often frowned upon as messy because of the tendency of some species to grow prostrate or boring because of the flower that can not be fully appreciated from 500 paces, we’ll cover the spectrum of diversity available for these cacti and show that the naysayers have it all wrong! Not only will it be clarified what was, is, and will be a Cleistocactus, but we’ll demonstrate the incredible variety of colors and shapes of these South American cacti and how they can fit into even the smallest desert backyards. With well over 50 species to choose from there is something for everyone. Move over, Echinopsis, Cleistocactus is here! Don’t miss a great opportunity to wow your neighbors and delight your avian visitors – and, learn how to grow Cleistocacatus in Arizona.
