Does anyone have a positive I.D. on this plant? It is my neighbor's.
She says it is approximately 15-20 years old and was about 1/3rd the size when it was planted but she can't remember. Spits out tons of fruit and seed pods. Flowers very early spring through mid summer.
Thanks

I am taking a gander, but I want to say a species of Ferocactus, although I am not familiar enough with the genus to know which one.

It is a Ferocactus - those flat bent spines are the clue. Beautiful flowers.

I think Ferocactus wislizeni, but F. peninsulae is a possibility, just hard to know if the latter would have been available in the trade here 20 years ago, since they are not really that common these days to begin with, so mostly likely F. wislizeni or a subsp. there-of.

Ferocactus wislizeni was my thought too.
