Fouquieria ochoterenae

This remarkable species is endemic to a small area in southwestern Puebla state where it forms spectacular groves of huge, umbrella shaped spiny trees reminiscent of the Didiereaceae forests of Madagascar.
The trunk of F. ochoterenae is one of the most beautiful in the genus. In the wet season, the trunk is usually green with snazzy gray stripes. In the dry season, the green tends to turn orange, as in this photo. The trunk is often home to species of the bromeliad Tillandsia.
The flowers of F. ochoterenae are very distinctive, each having a short, deep red corolla surmounted by a shaving brush of stamens.

Another Great Acquisition Found at Planet Desert

I have purchased quite an assortment of plants from Planet Desert since I discovered them a few months ago. Everything is top quality, reasonably priced, perfectly packed, and quickly delivered. I would give all of the other plants that I’ve purchased a 5-star review - and there are a lot of them. The only reason this fantastic Fouquieria is only getting 4 stars is because it arrived with the lead growth apparently damaged by either cold or heat (prior to delivery). It had two new growths emerging from the sides, so it is still alive and will recover, but this early damage to the primary growing point will have a lasting impact on its mature growth habit. Nonetheless, Planet Desert is a top-notch nursery. I have referred many friends to the site with the highest recommendations and will continue to do so.
