Flowering Cacti and Succulents of California
Created by

Max Brodie

Website 175 participants 161 spottings

The purpose of this mission is to highlight and celebrate the spectacular blooms coming from an otherwise very modest group of plants. These plants evolved to survive in some of the harshest ecosystems, yet manage to grow such luxurious flowers.
