Lemon Tart

sturgeonguy(5a ON)August 31, 2008

A close friend of May Jo is Lemon Tart. This neon yellow semi-cactus made a hit with its color last year, but as a flower left on a bush it was one of the reasons I lost interest in cactus styles. A profuse and usually early bloomer, if you like cactus you should love this one.

Lemon Tart - BBSC: 5" diameter flower on a 24" bush.

Personally, I prefer Sandia Joy.

Sandia Joy - BBWL: 4" diameter flower on a 24" bush.

Nice Russ, just think what a show they would make if they were 12 inches across?

Russ, I really like the Sandia Joy. The soft pastel yellow is really very appealing. That one is a "gotta have".

Thanks everyone.

Jroot, I have 15 Sandia Joy plants in bloom, so I can definitely give you a clump.
