Echinocereus viridiflorus var. canus is a remarkable white-spined variety closely related to Echinocereus viridiflorus subs. chloranthus. It is one of the few green-flowered cacti, and usually produces solitary stems covered with mostly white spines and its shaggy appearance resulting from spreading central spines. The juvenile stage, with long, white, hair-like spines in horizontal bands around the stem, is considered characteristic. Echinocereus viridiflorus var. canus is endemic to the Solitario, Sandstone ridge above Righthand Shutup, Presidio Co., Texas, USA. Altitude range is elevations of 1,300-1,600 metres above sea level. This cactus grows on steep slopes and ridge crests on sandstone and exposed Caballos Novaculite; also on chest and igneous rock.
