This easy to grow cactus hails from the Southwest US and into adjacent Mexico, although this particular offering comes from a high elevation seed collection in Alpine, Texas, thanks to our friends at Yucca Do. The small branching cacti can form patches over 3' wide with age. The 8" tall clumps are topped with brilliant orange-red flowers in spring. Good drainage and bright sun are essential.
