Specimen Size: 3" tall by 4" in diameterEchinopsis/Trichocereus cross hybrid 'YES' Has a Huge Extra Large bloom in purple-red and many rows of petals, easy to grow! Blooms many times during warm season.
Echinopsis Hybrids are easy to care for simply change the soil-mix once every season. Give full sun by coast or a few hours mid-day shade for really hot inland locations, fertilize when you apply to the rest of your plants and give ample water in warm months. Echinopsis are semi-dormant in winter so little water needed. Keep protected if you are in a frost/cold region but can handle very brief periods at freezing temps just not any long extended periods. Follow the care above and you will be rewarded with many beautiful blooms throughout the warm season.
