Zygocactus : Schlumbergera truncata is also known as Christmas Cactus, and Crab’s Claw Cactus. Photographed on black at Denhams Beach, New South Wales, Australia.
It is a member of the Cactaceae family and has flattened, spineless, pendulous branches with prominent notches at the margins. The flowers are asymmetrical in shape and appear at the stem tips. Flower colours range from pink, lavenders and reds through to oranges, yellows and whites.
The lovely Zygocactus prefers a warmer climate, but in cooler areas it makes an excellent indoor plant.
It flowers beautifully outside my front door in mid Spring.
