Photos on Friday: World Deserts exhibit at United States Botanic Garden

Today's Photos on Friday was taken at the United States Botanic Garden. I've been to the USBG a few times, usually around the holidays, but have stopped in on other occasions as well. One of my favorite sections to visit is the World Deserts exhibit which showcases succulents, grasses, flowering plants and various shrubs.

Cleistocactus winteri. The sign said it is native to Bolivia
 
A portion of a Big horned Euphorbia - I wasn't able to capture the entire plant. It is native to South Africa according to the sign posted.

Filled with succulents, grasses, shrubs and other flowering plants. - See more at: http://www.usbg.gov/conservatory#sthash.nntrzAA0.dpuf
