Echinocereus scheeri

Echinocereus scheeri is well-known and easy to grow, but by some reason an unpopular cactus. This species was discovered in 1840-s by Potts brothers who were sending plants to Kew gardens on regular basis.
This is a variable species, forming low-growing spiny clumps.

The flower in picture is in the process of opening up, to become filly-open in several hours.
