The echinocereus triglochidiatus, White Sands, is exceptionally cold hardy here in the Boise Valley in zones 5 - 7. It is one of the largest and free flowering of the claret cup types, and puts on quite a show in late spring. The hummingbirds love to visit this particular plant. Must have fast draining loose soil and usually no additional water during the growing season. Thrives in our hot very dry climate, which is similar to the conditions in that part of New Mexico.
