Rebutia heliosa
Rebutia heliosa
Rebutia heliosa is one of the choicer Rebutias as it does not outgrow its welcome so readily, and its small heads are covered almost completely with its silvery spines, making it very attractive even when not in flower. Its blooms are orange and have long flower tubes.

Two varieties (cajasensis and condorensis) are in cultivation and a very worthwhile hybrid with R. albiflora (lots of small heads with neat spination and masses of pale flowers) is also often seen in collections.
