Headgehog bloom

The strawberry hedgehog is a frequently seen cactus in the Sonoran desert. They have straight, upright stems which grow to about 3" in diameter and about a foot tall. Hedgehogs are typically found in clusters and are most easily recognized when they are blooming with bright magenta flowers. Strawberry hedgehogs are found in desert areas from central Arizona to northern Mexico.
