Echinocereus is a genus of ribbed, usually small to medium-sized cylindrical cacti, comprising about 70 species from the southern United States and Mexico in very sunny rocky places. Usually the flowers are large and the fruit edible. Extremely hardy, these cacti all thrive in our Durango garden. Some more than thrive, they show-off!
