Echinocereus rigidissimus var. rubispinus. One of my all time favorites for dramatic colored flowers and equally awesome red and white spines, this tiny Echinocereus is blooming on the back patio. It's in full sun and seems to love it, with three more buds on the way! I bought this as an unnamed, unbloomed cactus seedling from a really cool cactus shop in town, Exotic Gardens, and it has not disappointed me one bit.
