^ Ferocactus herrerae: Twisted Barrel Cactus
Ferocactus is a genus of large barrel-shaped cacti, mostly with large spines and small flowers. There are about 30 species included in the genus. They are found in the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.
They are desert dwellers and can cope with some frost and intense heat. The typical habitat is hot and very arid, and the plants have adapted to exploit water movement to concentrate their biomass in areas where water is likely to be present.
This genus is distributed in tropical and subtropical Asia [such as northern India, China, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Borneo] and northern Australia. The larger flowered species from which the large flowered hybrids are derived grow at high altitudes.
^ Aster sp.
Aster is a genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. Its circumscription has been narrowed, and it now encompasses around 180 species, all but one of which are restricted to Eurasia; many species formerly in Aster are now in other genera of the tribe Astereae.
This plant is a deciduous perennial originating from China. Common names are Wayside, Pagoda, Poker or Orchid Primrose. It is notable for its striking flower clusters. This muscarioides primula is rather short lived but easily grown. Purplish-blue, conical flowers, to 1cm across, open from scarlet buds and are borne in umbels on sturdy, white-mealed stems.
