Echinopsis


Echinopsis oxygona. The cactus are still in full bloom in the back yard. Shown here is one of the Echinopsis. Echino = Prickly; opsis = Appearance. Ironically, these are less spiny (is there such a thing) than some of their cactus cousins.

Thank you Martin. I only wish they would last longer. That little cacti had around 10 flowers but they were all gone after a few days. I suppose that just increases the anticipation!
