Astrophytum capricorne niveum MG55.5     9/7/20
The sub-species, "niveum", means "snow covered." I can't see any difference in this population and any other Mesa garden catalog number as being "snow covered." No matter; it's a pretty plant. (I've decided that any attempt to establish subspecies in the A. capricorne genus are a waste of time. They all intergrade so as to make any attempt at separation completely meaningless.)   (15/48)
