Echinocereus reichenbachii var. albispinus Family: Cactaceae. A form of this popular small columnar cactus with white to offwhite spines. It is identical to the normal E. reichenbachii except for this spine difference. The plant usually stays under a foot tall and is upright to leaning. Large pink flowers make this plant a showstopper in the summer. Requires general cactus care.
One of the most notable feature of this species is its cold hardiness. This plant is native to the Southwestern US and ranges north into Oklahoma and Colorado. It has been said to be tolerant of temperatures as cold as -13F! However, care should be taken in places with wet winters as it is most cold tolerant when dry. If you plan to grow it outdoors, don't subject it to subfreezing temperatures unless it has had most of a growing season to adapt to your climate.
You will receive the plant shown in the first two images. Last image shows what the flower will look like. Plants shown in a 4" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
