Giant Strawberry

Post by Ali Baba » Mon May 20, 2019 9:16 pm

This flower bud reminds me of a giant strawberry for some reason 🙄
Not sure what colour the flower will be as it is flowering for the first time from seed, originally from Doug Rowland as Trichocereus hybrid apparently from a well known hybridiser, I’ve lost the details unfortunately

Not Brian , it was an Italian nursery I think.

That's really spectacular and an unusual colour. Thanks for sharing.
