|Oreocereus hendriksenianus densilanatus, native to Peru and Chile, is a columnar with dense white hair and long golden central spines. Branches from base to form stems to 4" in diameter, and 6' in height. flowers icy carmine peru to chile This "Old man of the Andes" is so called for the long hairs that densely cover the columns. These plants stand on high mountains like snowy sentinels overlooking valleys. It is believed that the white hairs provide protection from the intense ultraviolet light of the higher altitudes. Flowers appear in spring and are somewhat tubular and icy carmine in color. Excellent as landscape or patio plant. In cultivation, Oreocereus requires bright light to produce dense hairs, but, as a former mountain dweller, does not care for extremely high temperatures. Prefers porous cactus soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun with ample airflow. Preferable not to water on overcast days, humid days or cold winter days. Protect from frost.|
