Its name was chosen in honor of Alvaro Obregon, the president of Mexico, often considered a sacred plant by locals. It is a genus, that includes only one species - Obregonia denegrii. It is of a very particular and rare artichoke shape, in which its so-called "leaves" are nothing more than large triangular tubercles, arranged in the shape of a rosette. The stem is globular, slightly depressed at the apex, of a dark green color, which contrasts nicely with the small curved spines, which can be seen at the apexes of the tubercles, and with the apical white down. Due to its unusual shape, it is highly sought after, as long as it is extremely decorative, perfect for those, who want to give an exotic touch to the environments, paying very little attention!
