Here is a small Echinopsis blooming. it is not Echinopsis multiplex like the others but is a subspecies. It has been in ground two years, also, it too is hardy here.The larger ones bloomed two months back. I planted 7 different colors of Echinopsis this Spring form yellow to bright orange to in between. Also here is a picture of my Aloe saponaria(Soap Aloe) in ground and doing well. It has been in ground here 5 years and in ground at my old place for about 10. I brought a pup here and it is spreading nicely. My neighbors moved back to Phoenix yesterday. She put the name of an Argentine Trichocereus terscheki into her phone and will try and locate one for me and mail it to me. They are expensive and usually see only tall ones for hundreds of dollars, but you can get babies in phoenix for less than 10 dollars. This T. terscheki is called the Argentine Saguaro. It can get twenty or more feet tall with arms. It should be hardy here if the T. huasca of which I have several and they are hardy for me here. I will plant it beside the Aloe saponaria. They are very fast growing and will develop arms in 10 or less years. I should, I hope, live long enough to witness that. LOL.
