Echinopsis arioles and spines

It isn't just the flowers which attract me to cacti and other succulents. For some, this may just look like so many bugs, but to me, it shows the strange beauty of these plants and the amazing ways in which they have been able to adapt to a difficult environment.


  1. Yes, plant evolution fascinates me too, and it's interesting to see how practicality can often be naturally beautiful.

  2. Las echinopsis son maravillosas y me encantan sus flores.
    las mías están en pimpollos.
    Esta variedad creo que no la tengo,
    Un abrazo.

  3. I should have identified the cultivar. This is Paramount Rose, one of the Johnson hybrids.
