Echinocereus cocinneus

Echinocereus cocinneus in Zion National Park. This is one of the larger plants at that location. Only once I've seen these magnificent clumps in full bloom, all covered with hundreds of scarlet flowers. The intensity of flowering is very condition-dependent.
Several years back these plants suffered from grass fire, started at, ironically, firefighter facility, removed since. The plants that survived recovered well and had overgrown the fire damage.
