Plant Description

From only a few locations in southwestern Oklahoma and nearby Texas comes this cool little native cactus. Perfectly sized for rock gardens or a spot at the front of a raised bed, it puts forth huge pink springtime flowers that measure up to 5 inches across. Attractive even when not in bloom, these cacti are densely hairy with spines that can be white, yellow, reddish, brownish or pinkish. Gardeners everywhere like this group of Hedgehog or Lace Cactus because they are some of the most cold and moisture tolerant cacti.
