Coryphantha recurvata is a small barrel cactus native to the mountains (up to 6,000' elevation) of Southern Arizona, which has thrived for us in the humid, rainy southeast US. Coryphantha recurvata forms prolifically offsetting mounds of 6" tall x 10" wide barrels, each adorned in yellow, downward aimed spines. The barrels are topped with a mass of small yellow flowers, starting for us in mid-summer.
