Mammilaria red spines

Mammilaria spinosissima


Mammillaria spinosissima is a columnar plant that is mostly solitary but can develop offspring on older plants. It is native to Guerrero, Mexico. Due to its widespread distribution in Mexico, M. spinosissima is quite varied. The spines range in colour from rusty red to white. The “rubrispina” variety grows in attractive clusters of columns that are heavily covered in vivid coppery red spines. In late winter and early spring, bright orange columns are surrounded by vivid majenta flowers, creating a dramatic contrast.
