Coryphantha minima
Coryphantha minima
Many Coryphanthas are worth growing, but probably none more so than Coryphantha minima, if indeed it is a Coryphantha - the name Escobaria is favoured by many growers. To add to the confusion, it is also known as C. nellieae and E. nellieae!

Whatever its called, this plant from Texas is a real gem. It will never outgrow its welcome as it grows slowly, stays small and readily produces its lovely pink flowers.

The pictured was taken at the BCSS Zone One Show at Gateshead Garden Festival in 1990.
