Echinocereus reichenbachii perbellus SB2013 MG250.7392     7/4/16
There is enough physical variation in this particular species that you could have maybe fifty plants and think that they’re all different species. All the flowers, however, have a dark red band at the base of the tepals. Occasionally, you can be misled by a greenish cast of this band, but the red is there. The native range is from somewhere in Kansas to Mexico. One of the few reliably hardy cacti, even in snow and rain.    (48/48)
