Cereus hildmannianus (Hedge Cactus)


Native to South America, this shrubby cactus produces a clump of thick, ribbed, blue-green cylindrical branches. Most plants display needle-like spines on the branches, although the form we grow is mostly spineless. Large, fragrant white funnel-shaped flowers open at night during the summer months. This cactus tolerates full sun, but performs best in afternoon shade. Provide good drainage.
