Mammillaria spinosissima is a cactus with cylindrical, dark blue-green stem, up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall and up to 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter, almost hidden under a dense covering of spines. Flowers from the upper part of the plant in a ring shape around the apex, purplish or deep-pink, up to 0.8 inch (2 cm) long and up to 0.6 inch
Stunning variety of barrel cactus that blooms at an early age. New young spines are a dramatic shade of pink, in striking contrast to the blue gray foliage. Excellent accent specimen for a waterwise rock garden or xeriscape, and thrives in containers.
Echinopsis subdenudata is a pretty little cactus. The stem is globose to elongate up to 12 inches (30 cm) high with 8 to 12 -ribs, sometimes offsetting and sometimes not. It is almost spineless or with very short cream spines. The flowers are fragrant, white funnel-shaped, with long tubes, up to 9 inches (22 cm) long. It blooms from late spring to all summer long, the flowers open on the morning of the first day and remain opened all the night long but last only one day in full beauty, at the second day they start to wither.
Mammillaria carmenae is a species of flowering plant in the family Cactaceae. It is native to Tamaulipas state, in eastern central Mexico. It grows to 8 cm tall by 15 cm broad. The clustered egg-shaped stems, 3–4 cm thick, are covered in creamy yellow down and bristles.
Becomes slightly columnar to 6" in height, branching dichotomously (each single stem begins to divide to form two stems) to form large clusters. Related to Mammillaria karwinskiana. Flowers are pale yellow with reddish midstripe on each petal. Requires excellent drainage from porous cactus soil. Prefers bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
