Nina Williams replied to Gina Morgenstein's discussion christmas cactus in the group Cactus & Succulents

Banksias

"Yes Lorraine, you can touch them, there are lots of different varieties, sizes, colours etc. I have a smaller variety in my front garden. The birds adore them for the nectar they get from them. The one above always reminds me of a corn cob!"
