Cactus Blossom || Cactus Blossom floral art print

Image of Cactus Blossom || Cactus Blossom floral art print

In Hanakotoba, the Japanese language of flowers, cactus flowers are associated with lust. Therefore, giving the gift of a cactus flower indicates your sexual interest in someone. In contrast, many Western cultures view cactus blossoms as a sign of endurance, protection from danger, and chastity. You’ll have to decide which meaning you want to associate with this blossom.

Drawn from a blossoming Mammillaria geminispina (Twin-spined Cactus) at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, DC.

This illustration was created as part of a 30-day art challenge, and each print is linked with a song. For this print, it's The Cactus Blossom’s “Got a Lotta of Love.” (
