*This plant is not currently in production, but the page is preserved for informational purposes.

This large spiky succulent occurs on rocky slopes in Sonora, Mexico from 500 to 2500 feet. Long spiny branches (canes) arise from a short thick trunk. The small green leaves that line the branches are drought-deciduous. Bright red flower clusters appear primarily in the spring, but can bloom intermittently throughout the year, attracting hummingbirds. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils.
