Hardy down to -7°C
Large flowers up to 6cm
Cacti are well loved house plants, but rarely seen outdoors in the UK! This Chamaecereus x Lobivia hybrid changes all that, making a superb hardy ‘Garden Cactus’ that can survive short periods as low as -7C (45F). Echinopsis hybrid (Chamaelobivia group) makes a real talking point in well drained rockeries, alpine troughs and gravel gardens.
These clump forming Cacti will slowly develop spiky clumps, decorated in summer with large blooms, up to 6cm wide on mature plants.
Although they are hardy to -7C (45F) over short periods, Echinopsis (Chamaelobivia group) must be grown in very free draining soil. They will also appreciate protection from cold, wet, winter weather. Provide a winter cloche where possible, or plant them in containers that can be moved to a cold greenhouse or the shelter of a cold frame between late autumn and spring. Height: 15cm (5”). Spread: 5cm (2”).
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Hardy garden cacti are slow growing so patience is required. Water only occasionally, during very dry spells and allow the soil to dry out in winter where possible.
Whilst hardy to -7C (45F) over short periods, it is recommended that you provide a winter cloche, or plant them in containers that can be moved under cover from autumn to spring.
