Scarlet Hedgehog Cactus Seeds (Echinocereus coccineus) 25+Seeds
Name: Greek echinos = spiny + cactus
One of two genera of classic barrel cactus with 6 species. Plant bodies have deep ribs with heavy spination and relatively small flowers. The ovaries and fruits are distinctively woolly although the flower tube is scaly.
The best known member of the genus is the Mexican Echinocactus grusonii (Golden Barrel). Through habitat destruction, the wild plant has become rare and endangered. However, it is exceeding common in the hortultural trade and propagated from seed in very large numbers.
