Most years, the DSO designates a “Flower of the Year” for competition at the DSO Annual Show. All exhibitors are welcome to enter the competition and the best bloom will be chosen and placed on the Court of Honor. The 2020 flower of the year will be Jackie Mae Staas. This cultivar, originated by our own Tony Evangelista, is a BB, incurved cactus, light blend, and was named for his and Jackie’s grandaughter.
Tony and the DSO propogation team will be working to have a good supply of tubers/plants at our sales for those who wish to grow this flower.
Looking forward to seeing a whole table of these beauties!
