Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus (Echinocereus rigidissimus) is one of our most beautiful Southwestern cacti. This small barrel cactus has bands of smooth, glossy pink and white spines, and an eye-popping display of huge magenta flowers in early summer. This is a delightful addition to xeric gardens, rock gardens, and container gardens. Bright flowers are bee-friendly. Cacti are highly deer and rabbit resistant.
