Browningia candelaris

Cactus with a bearing similar to a real tree, which in nature can reach even 6 meters in height! When young it is formed by a single columnar stem, equipped with deep ribs rather close and well furrowed, along which very robust brown spines protrude that continue to grow throughout the life of the plant up to more than 15 cm long. When the cactus reaches maturity, in nature, it is usual to continue the growth with abundant apical ramifications: each branch, with rather reduced diameters, lengthens considerably and is characterized by total absence of thorns! The contrast that is generated between the extremely wild stem and the glabrous "crown" creates an absolutely unique scenic impact, further amplified by the gigantic white tubular flowers that bloom along the branches.
