Easter Lily Cactus

Echinopsis oxygona

Deep pink buds on tall stems burst open to large eye-catching blooms with striking pink petals that fade to white towards the flower centers. The showy blooms rise from the white spine-jeweled ribs of this clump-forming, cylinder-shaped green cactus in spring. Year-round beauty for an arid landscape or container garden. A frost-tender evergreen.
