Maihuenia poeppigii

Family cactaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-11)
Flowers yellow
Size 4"
Light sun

Hardy cactus from Chile, forming cushions of spiny heads. Fruits follow the creamy yellow flowers. I have just a single seedling, so I get one shot at trying to overwinter a plant and see it do its thing in our garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
