Zygocactus (Schlumbergera truncate) also known as Thanksgiving cactus. If you purchase Zygocactus, it is considered to be a Thanksgiving cactus and often marketed as Christmas cactus. True Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera x buckleyi) is not heavily marketed.

Zygocactus blooms in late November, while Christmas cactus blooms around Christmas, and cultivars vary.
This tropical Thanksgiving cactus produces purple, pink or white blossoms in response to the cooler temperatures and shorter days in late fall.
Thanksgiving cactus is winter-hardy in in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 10 to 12, but it's most often grown as a houseplant.
