Pink Mammillaria Cactus Flower

Mammillaria Cactus Flower
Pink with Yellow Center
The common name for mammillaria cactus is "nipple cactus". This genus of cacti get their name from their breast-like shape.

This beautiful two-toned pink flower with gold center was flowering in the desert garden at the Huntington Library late January. Winter is a great time of year to visit the desert gardens since it is the peak season for cacti and aloes to flower.
