Echinopsis 'Rose'

This is the other large flowers that came into bloom yesterday, the Echinopsis 'Paramount Rose'.  I'm not an expert on the hybrids created by Harry Johnson in the 40s, 50s and 60s, but this was sold to us as a Paramount hybrid with the name indicated. Whether or not that's the case, it is certainly of the type of hybrids that Harry Johnson was creating, focusing on size and color. The also tend to be very easy to grow and are quite floriferous.
I was able to get out and take a number of photos Sunday, covering everything from various cacti to a few Lithops, and I'll be putting these up this week.
Enjoy your plants!
