Front cover: Echinocereus mombergerianus This tends to be one of the less commonly seen species of this popular genus. It was originally described by Gerhard Frank in 1989 and has been maintained as a good species by Taylor in the NCL. It originates from mountainous areas in northern Baja California, Mexico, and the type species was collected at around 2 000m. It is a rapidly clustering, well-armed species that appreciates a sunny position and a shallow pan in which to expand. Perhaps because of the elevation of its homeland it does not appear to have any problems with cold marking over winter, unlike some of its more touchy Ball cousins. The real delight in this one is in the freely-produced, bicoloured flowers which, whilst not the biggest by Echinocereus standards, do provide a nice contrast against the spines.
