Plant of the Week 03/06/2020

March 6, 2020

Claret Cup Hedgehog Cactus
Echinocereus triglochidiatus
Zone 4-8

 

A clumping cactus that slowly grows 2 feet tall and 18 inches wide. Beautiful bright red flowers appear in spring and are followed by sweet, edible pods. Doesn’t need water, grows best when soil is amended with sand to improve drainage.

 

Needles on cactus are thick and do not attach to skin easily like other cacti (prickly pear or cholla). Plant in full sun. Looks best when planted among other cacti in a rock flower bed.
