Cerus Honey Anyone?

3 February 2010 No Comment

I posted a couple photos of my Cerus columnar cactus before, here and here. This cactus flowers prolifically from mid to late summer. The flowers are magnificent. They have a beautiful pink tinge, are huge and stay out until early afternoon. As you can see from this photo bees also love the flowers.

The Cerus is a much stronger cactus than the San Pedros and will grow to be very tall and sprout many arms as you can see in this photo. Mine keeps growing and is surprisingly rock solid in high winds.

I do have Cerus cactus around two metres tall which I am happy to sell to anyone interested. At that size they are still easy to transplant though transport would be difficult, so you probably would need to live in or around Melbourne.
