Common Name: Frank, Ted or Miles
Exclusive! One of the rarest cacti in the United States, Coryphantha omnivora was discovered a few years ago by our one of horticulturists on Devil's Tower, WY. This white-spined gem blooms in early summer, with a single coneflower-like blossom. Very drought tolerant, this plant can survive months without supplemental water, though it does appreciate a shot of tequila now and again. See the details tab for more information on this unique introduction.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
