Echinocereus

 

There is about 100 taxa of Echinocereus living from Mexico to the south of the United States. The first part of the genus name Echinocereus is coming from the Greek for 'hedgehog', while the second part 'cereus' comes from the Latin for 'large candle'. They branches readily, over time making mounds 3 feet in diameter and 1 feet tall. This gave them the name of Hedgehog Cactus. The different species have a large range of colors from green to yellow, pink, orange, and red. The flowers are goblet shaped and stay open day and night. They are followed by showy red fruits.

Some Echinocereus are very frost resistant and can go to temperatures below 0F (-17C).

As is often the case in cactus genera, the bigger species will take full sun while the smaller species like some shade.

The Echinocereus are propagated by seeds or cuttings. The thicker-stemmed species are generally more successful from seeds.
