Cleistocactus Strausii x Espostoa Lanata Hybrid Cactus.
This is a very attractive and interesting hybrid between Cleistocactus Strausii and Espostoa Lanata Cactus. It is very decorative with characteristics of both varieties. Thicker in the stem than the Cleistocactus and still having a dense covering of fine white-grey hairs which acts as a woolly coat but the many needle like spines are much longer.    

When mature enough plants will produce vivid crimson coloured funnel shaped flowers although in a more open form like that of the Espostoa, opening at night and remaining open for a couple more.

This Hybrid Cactus makes a beautiful specimen, perfect for enthusiasts. Very difficult to find for sale at this size in the UK.
