Cleistocactus strausii

Archive entry 21.06.15

6th June 2015

A tall growing Bolivian species with narrow bodies densely covered in white spines. It has done very well in the Agave house, adding a bold upright accent to the Agave and seeming to resist the cold. However the "Beast from the East" in the late spring of 2018 penetrated a long way into the house and the Cleistocactus collapsed from the base. I have another so I may replant in due course.
