Product Description

Ferocactus viridescens, commonly known as the "San Felipe Barrel Cactus" or "Mexican Lime Cactus," is a remarkable and visually striking species of barrel cactus native to the arid regions of Mexico, particularly in the states of Baja California and Baja California Sur. This cactus is celebrated for its unique appearance and adaptability to harsh desert environments.

The San Felipe Barrel Cactus typically grows as a solitary, globular or cylindrical-shaped plant with pronounced ribs, and it can reach heights of 1 to 3 feet (0.3 to 0.9 meters) with a diameter of about 1 to 2 feet (0.3 to 0.6 meters). Its most distinctive feature is its striking green coloration, which is often tinged with hues of lime or yellow-green. The spines are straight or slightly curved and typically range in color from yellow to brown, creating a captivating contrast against the cactus's vibrant green skin.

During the blooming season, Ferocactus viridescens produces beautiful, bright yellow to orange-red flowers that emerge from the top of the plant. These colorful blossoms attract pollinators and add to the cactus's overall charm.

As a resilient and drought-tolerant species, the San Felipe Barrel Cactus thrives in full sun and well-draining, rocky or sandy soils. It is well-suited for xeriscaping, desert gardens, or as an impressive addition to succulent collections, where its unique appearance and adaptability to arid conditions are highly appreciated. The Ferocactus viridescens not only serves as a captivating focal point in arid landscapes but also symbolizes the tenacity and beauty of desert flora.
