Echinocereus Coccineus Cactus

Usually clumping, Echinocereus coccineus forms large colonies of as many as 50-100 (500)-thick stems on each plant at maturity. Stems can vary from almost spineless to wildly and densely spined. Echinocereus coccineus is a cactus with both hermaphroditic (bisexual) and dioecious (male and female) forms of flowers in different plants.
The flowers appear specialized in hummingbirds, but are also pollinated by bees. They are huge and highly rewarding, and daily nectar production averages 30 mg sugar per flower. This set of traits represents a syndrome rare among hummingbird flowers, in which the flower fits the head rather than just the bill, and birds are well rewarded for a risky or inconvenient visit.
