Passion flower vines are jumping into high gear-
looking forward to some outer-space flowers from these!

Good to see this tree Opuntia flowering here-
to bad I had to cut it in half.

Cacti have some of the most amazing flowers of any plant, I suspect many people are not aware of this, thanks for posting. Some of my favorites for blooms come from different hedgehog cactus.

Great pictures.. Having lived in Kansas several years ago, it is awesome seeing these kinds of plants being grown in the Midwest. Agree that as a group of plants, Cacti are far under appreciated. Love the Bearded Iris also, thanks for sharing!

      Can somebody please help me out, I am currently growing W. Filiferas, T. fortunei, R. Hystrix, C. Humilis and a couple butias. I lost my biggest W. Filifera this last winter due to fungal infection, I’m wondering what do you use? Daconil or Copper Fungicides? Also what brand of Anti-dessicants if any do you use? Any input will be greatly appreciated. 
       
      thank you

      Howdy, I had a plant nursery in Texas for a decade until 2010, called CollectorPalms. 

      I have considered restarting with “Texas Tough Plants” ; lots of native plants and ones that do well here and similar places. Right now it’s still a dream, but I have the availability to get it up and running in a year. I have experience growing & shipping small to large palms. Others, I may need some input.

      Why, I think it’s needed, it’s difficult to get certain plants. 10-20 years ago had a lot of good nurseries that are no longer... they retired mostly. Also the recession of 2008 hurt a lot of nurseries. I also have no local competition. No other cool Nurseries. 
       
      Question to all.
       
      What would you like to see available at the nursery? Specific palms, agaves, yuccas, cactus, trees etc... sizes & prices?
      Thanks for the ideas. I have a list already in mind, but want good feedback from others. 
      Everyone reading this, give me your thoughts! Please! Thanks in Advance!
