Night-blooming Cereus

Thank you to Rosemary Huestis, Harrison Yocum, and Maribeth for allowing me to photograph their plants. Some of the photos in this section were made in or near Saguaro National Park, also here, or in the Coronado National Forest. Others were made at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Tucson Botanical Gardens, Tohono Chul Park, the Quinlan Mountains, location of Kitt Peak National Observatory, Saguaro Cliffs, Boyce-Thompson Arboretum, and Desert Botanical Garden. Some were made in my personal garden or on my property, or on various hikes and excursions in other parts of southern Arizona.

To see my photographs of butterflies and insects with plants and flowers, go to my Insects and Arachnids page.

Torch Cactus

Coming soon: many photos of this year's crop of flowers, including the night-blooming cereus, Queen of the Night (Peniocereus greggii), and the torch cactus (Trichocereus hybrid). See photos on this page to whet your appetite!

I am in the process of putting names on the photographs. If you know the name of a plant that I have not identified, please email me! Thank you.
