My garden is zone 9B in the Sonora Desert south of Tucson, AZ. "Apricot Glow" seems to be a medium sized Echinopsis hybrid plant. It seems to be somewhat easier sun stressed than other Echinopsis hybrids. The body of the plant also seems to more easily split than other E. hybrids when it is watered to generously. The flower is absolutely beautiful. It is my favorite of all Echinopsis hybrid flowers.
