Rose Easter Lily Cactus


The Easter Lily Cactuses used to all be Lobivias, except this one which was never known as a Lobivia.

This one used to be called Echinopsis melapotamica. Good to know!

Here’s a closeup looking deep inside the flower.

Echinopsis leucantha2

Wow! Interesting.

The cactus will get only around 5″ in diameter, and will grow to 14″ tall. They are generally solitary, but they do have huge wild spines. You can see a hint of that in the top picture, if you can look past those crazy beautiful flowers.

Found in nature in Argentina. Lucky Argentinians.
