For Zephyr!

Drum roll please!

That's right, the Zephyr cholla is not only growing, but looks like it wants to bloom!

I knew naming this delightful New Mexico native (and an endangered one at that) after such an incredible lady would be good omen! 8)

Just thought I would pass that along.

Hi Mark

I know this was meant just for Zephy..but whenever I see her name I know it has to be something worth reading.

The "Zephyr Cholla" sounds very exotic..is there any chance of seeing a photo?..I love beautiful plants..especially when they are named after our own beautiful lady, who is definately blooming.

Never knock on deaths door..ring the bell and run..he really hates that.

The Zephyr Cholla -- I like that name! 

I miss all those wonderful desert plants (they indeed are beautiful Jan).  When I was in AZ last week, my auntie's ocotillo was blooming beautifully.

Will second that request for a pic, por favor!

Take care,

I'll see what I can do about the photo. It's just so cute! The blooms of this particular variety are supposed to be crimson. Since I'm quite fond of red, I can't wait.
