Echinopsis Scoullar Cactus
A cultivar grown for its compact clustering habit rather than its flowers. The Echinopsis genus of cacti includes dozens of species from South America. This cacti forms small, round clusters with sharp spines. Large 8cm flowers can appear over warmer months. They are remarkable for the great size, length of tube, and beauty of their flowers, which, borne upon generally small and dumpy stems, appear much larger and more attractive than would be expected.
