Description: Its stems are almost completely concealed by fine silvery white and dark-reddish or mahogany colored spines.

Habit: It is a clustering species (rarely solitary) readily forming, especially in cultivation, clumps of many heads.

Flowers: Rarely more than 3.5 cm long and 4.5 in diameter. Bright pink to light purple, numerous in a ring at the base of the plant.

Blooming season: April-May and remain open for up to five days.

Watering Needs: Water moderately in the growing season, keep dry during the winter rest.

Frost Tolerance: Plants are quite frost hardy -5 (10° C). Overwinter in a cool place (at 0/10°C) this is important for the flowers as well as for plants health. Without this cool winter period they normally won't get any buds.

Sun Exposure: Needs a full sun exposure (light shadow may be useful in the hottest summer days).

Propagation: Seed, cutting, grafting.
