Red Barrel Cactus
The Ferrocactus or Red Barrel cactus is an incredibly hardy and attractive large cactus for the garden. It is much more forgiving than the golden Barrel cactus and can take a wide range of temperatures including periods of freezing. Good drainage is the key to keeping this cactus happy. It will reliably reach up to 1 meter tall and it blooms a stunning magenta ring of flowers around the top in spring! We offer this excellent cactus in two sizes: Medium, which measures approximately the size of a basketball, and Large, which measures 2-3 feet tall by 18” diameter.
