Hildewintera (Crested)

Hildewintera aureispina f. crested Hildewintera aureispina f. crested
Starting from 3.00€

The name was chosen in honor of Hildegarda Winter, sister of the famous cacti discoverer Friedrich Ritter, who first studied this genus among many others. Some classifications place these plants in the Cleistocactus genus, identifying all Hildewintera only as hybrids of a particular species. However, they have very distinguishable characteristics, first of all the columnar and tapered shape of its lively stems, thin and rarely branched - the peculiarity, that gives them the common name of "monkey's tail". Among the short and golden spines, when mature, large tubular inflorescences blossom, very showy and appreciated, making this plant even more suitable to decorate and color your environments!
