Ferocactus wislizeni

Here is orange-flowering form of Ferocactus wislizeni that grows in Organ Pipe NP. This species is common around the park and easy to notice due to it's size. I was visiting the area in early May - already hot and too late to see many blooms, but just in time for that Ferocactus.
This is a striking plant with robust spines, and younger small plants would decorate any collection. Blooming size is reached in couple decades I assume, as like most of Ferocacti this is the large growing plant.
