Mammillaria sempervivi

Lynn-Marie snapped this picture of a Mammillaria sempervivi in flower. This is an older plant with lots of wool on the top. I told you I'm a sucker for woolly plants. I especially like M. sempervivi because of the delicate flowers which are just right for the woolly apex are followed later by outlandish red seedpods. (The second picture is one I took earlier of a different and younger plant.)


  1. woolly mammillaria plants are wonderful. this one is such an eye candy :)

  2. Thanks to both of you. I do appreciate your feedback.
