What time of the year do cactuses bloom?



  1. 0 Votes

    Cacti usually bloom during the end of spring through the beginning of summer.  Unlike wildflowers, which need a supply of water in the ground to survive, cacti have evolved in ways that have allowed them to adapt to the hot and dry desert climate by holding moisture in and consuming it sparingly.  Since these plants are able to survive in the hot dry desert climate, they can afford to wait and bloom later in the spring when the days are becoming hotter.  There are certain types of cacti, like the Christmas Cactus which blooms over the winter.

    There are many types of cactus and they have different blooming periods. Most are between spring and summer, like the Saguaro. Some bloom only at night and some even bloom in winter.
