Echinocereus coccineus - Scarlet Hedgehog Cactus
Scarlet Hedgehog is a miniature cactus just 2" across. It climbs on itself, stacking like stones - as many as 50-100 at a time, each covered with long slender spines. In early summer, large silky flowers almost cover the plants. Often, there are more blooms than cactus in radiant shades of fiery orange to deep scarlet. They bring hummingbirds from everywhere.
Its compact size and odd growing habit makes Hedgehog cactus perfect for containers and small gardens. Best in climate zones 9b to 11 or a bright windowsill.
