Stetsonia Coryne Cactus Seeds 

Stetsonia coryne, the only species of the genus Stetsonia, is a large, massive, tree-like columnar cactus that grows to a height of 3-10 m tall and is one of the most striking features of hot desert regions in Argentina. Once large, this species is cold hardy in areas where freezing is mild and brief. It is said to branch more densely and grow “as wide as it is tall” if allowed to experience intense sun and frost while in the ground. The plants resemble somewhat the many-branched Polaskia chichipe.

It is among the most famous cacti for the fiercely spines that cover the trunk and should prove an interesting and eye-catching plant for the specialist collector and for those wanting a somewhat different plant.
