Sulcorebutias today

Post by Diane » Tue Apr 27, 2021 4:20 pm

My Sulcorebutias are now coming into flower, so thought I’d share with you.

Sulcorebutia jolantana, I love the contrast between the long golden spines and deep red flowers:

I think this is Sulcorebutia mentosa, unless you know different.

Fantastic flowers aside, it's lovely to see a range of the best body and spine forms out there. Such a shame so many never get to see beyond the ubiquitous rauschii!

Lovely display Diane. And a very healthy looking heliosoides! Mine are only just starting to flower.

Well, Phil, many of the nicer forms aren’t available to the average collector, I suppose, you have to grow from seed.

Paul, this one is on a graft, and I’ve never got round to de-grafting it! As it looks pretty good, I won’t bother.

Super plants. I really like that first one.

Here's a tiddler of mine that flowered for the first time today, with a really dark flower - as you would expect from the name: Sulcorebuta melanorubra.

Fantastic Sulcos! I look forward to their riot of colour every year... S. jolantana is a name I never came across before (nor S. melanorubra); your S. heliosoides and S. roberto-vasquezii are stunning, Diane!
