Echinocereus leonensis

Echinocereus pentalophus leonensis is a larger stemmed relative of more common E.pentalophus, and has very similar flowers, a bit more funnel-shaped. The larger plant I have is not creeping yet, with stems standing up about 20cm/ 8 inches. This is one of the stolon-forming Echinocerei. This species deserves been better known and more commonly presented in collections.
