Escobaria

 

Escobaria is a small North American genus from southwestern USA down to northern Mexico. It is closely related to Coryphantha and somewhat more distantly to Mammillaria.

Escobaria have small, funnel-shaped flowers in the spring and summer. The flowers are generally yellow, pink or brownish. In general Escobaria are very rot prone. They should be underpotted, be in a container with excellent drainage, and be watered carefully. All of them can take some frost.
