An Unusual Colored Zygocactus

Zygocactus Limelight Dancer

You may remember the full photo of this zygocactus from Wednesday. It is one of my favorites, if not my favorite in my collection (like all plant lovers, my favorite is the one that’s blooming at the time of course, but I really love the unusual colors of this one!)

I decided to do a little research because I decided that this couldn’t be the only one in this line. I thought that I recalled other “limelights,” but I was mistaken–it’s actually other “dancers.”

There are several zygocacti in the Dancer line and most seem to be bicolor of some sort, even if it is just, like Jolly Dancer, pink and lighter pink.

The provocatively named Exotic Dancer is dark pink, almost red, with lighter pink to almost white interior petals.

And Sunset Dancer is coral with white interior petals.

Interestingly enough, in text, I have seen Limelight Dancer described as yellow with purple reverse coloring. I am not sure if I would call it yellow, but perhaps it is as yellow as this plant can get. I think I might go with pale coral and fuchsia. Maybe I am being overly dramatic. But it’s my plant–I can call it whatever I want.
