A genus of shrubby, columnar cacti, without a trunk, densely branching from the base (Lophocereus schottii) or little branched (Lophocereus marginatus), distributed in Mexico (Sonora and Baja California) and in Arizona. The first produces night-blooming flowers, which are pollinated by moths, while the second produces morning flowers that stay open even at night and are pollinated by hummingbirds during the day and by bats at night. The locals use these columnar cacti as fences because, once they are planted close to each other, they form a sort of high and impenetrable hedge after a few years.

We are sorry, there are currently no plants available.
