Info

Introduced by cactus maven, Sarah McCombs, this 5' chollo, with 2" stems clothed in brilliant, silver-white spines, makes an outstanding garden or pot specimen especially where backlit by the sun. Extremely drought tolerant but fastest growing with occasional summer thunderstorms, even those from hoses. Tolerates temperatures a little below 0 °F with ease, upper USDA zone 6. Best not planted near helium balloons but, otherwise, very easygoing.
