Lace Hedgehog Cactus, Echinocereus Reichenbachii, Two Sizes - Free US Shipping


Echinocereus reichenbachii is a cactus that is commonly known as Lace Hedgehog Cactus, Lace Cactus, Lace Hedgehog and Purple Candle. It is native to portions of Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and New Mexico and is quite cold hardy. These are great rock garden plants that require little to no maintenance.

There are two different plants being offered in this listing. There are slight variations between the two that were not noticeable in the plants that provided the seeds used to propagate them. The spines of the larger cactus have a yellowish tint while the smaller cactus has spines that are lighter in color.

The small cactus has 4 stems that are between 3 and 4 inches tall and measure 1.40 to 1.60 inches in diameter at their widest points. This plant was photographed in a 4 inch black pot.

The large cactus has two stems that are 6-3/4 inches and 8-3/4 inches long and are 1-3/4 to 2 inches in diameter at their widest points. This cactus is shown growing in 6 inch container.

These will be shipped without soil or pots.

The common names for these cacti are based on the multitude of spines that lay flat against their stems and the large purple to dark pink flowers that appear between April and June. They are nearly round when young and elongate to form a tall cylindrical plant as they mature. They can reach a height of 12 inches and may form large colonies. These require well draining soil that is preferably topped with a two inch layer of crushed rock. They should be planted in an area that receives a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. They can go without water for several months and should not be watered more often than once every 3 weeks. These cacti can tolerate temperatures as low as -10 degrees.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not use heat packs and we are not responsible for damage related to the plants being exposed to cold temperatures.

We cannot ship these plants to destinations within the states of California, Hawaii or to any of the US island territories. Shipping to any other location within the contiguous United States is included in the listing prices.
