Austrocephalocereus

The name of this genus comes from the Latin word "australis" meaning "austral/southern" and the Greek word "kephale" meaning "head" plus the ending "cereus". They are endemic plants of Brazil, where they grow in the dry thorny forest of Caatinga and on rocky hills. These beautiful cacti with very spiny cylindrical stems create distinctive white flowers that bloom only at night. In their natural habitat, they branch out and cluster abundantly at the base, forming impenetrable forests.
