From Baja California, Mexico, this species is characteristic of the winter-rainfall, Pacific coast side of the peninsula. It typically forms candelabrum-like plants that have a characteristic yellow-green color. The flowers are diurnal, light green to white, and quite forgettable. We grow this species outside in Tucson, where it takes rib damage below 20F. These plants are rooted cuttings in 3-inch pots.
