Random Plant: California barrel cactus

California barrel cactus (Ferocactus cylindraceus, Cactaceae), photographed 03/15/2010 near Kingman Arizona.

I always knew cacti had short but spectacular flowering periods.  What I didn’t know was that they can also exhibit some interesting colors on their thorns, as was observed on this California barrel cactus (Ferocactus cylindraceus, Cactaceae).
