Pediocactus peeblesianus, commonly known as Navajoa peeblesiana or Peebles' Navajo cactus, is a rare and small species of cactus native to the United States. This species is distinguished by several characteristics:

  1. Size and Shape: It is a small, globular cactus, typically growing only a few centimeters tall. The plant's size and compact shape are among its most distinctive features.

  2. Spines: The cactus is covered with spines that can vary in color. These spines play a crucial role in protecting the plant from herbivores and in helping to shade it from intense sunlight.

  3. Flowers: Pediocactus peeblesianus produces flowers that are generally small and can vary in color from pink to yellow. The blooming period is typically in the spring.

  4. Habitat: It is native to arid regions in the United States, specifically in the southwestern areas. The plant typically grows in rocky or sandy soils, often in environments that are challenging for many other plants.

  5. Conservation Status: Pediocactus peeblesianus is considered rare and is listed as a threatened species under the United States Endangered Species Act. Its populations are threatened by habitat loss, over-collection, and environmental changes.

Due to its rarity and specific growing conditions, Pediocactus peeblesianus is a plant of interest in conservation efforts. It requires careful management to ensure its survival in the wild.
