Claret Cup Cactus

Echinocereus triglochidiatus


This is a small cactus that has long white spines. It grows in clumps in hot, rocky, or dry places. During this time of year they bloom with bright red flowers.


This cactus was growing in a ponderosa-dominated forest near the rim of a canyon.


All the cacti of this species appear to be blooming here right now.
