This member of the Fouquieriaceae family was described by Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler in 1848, and is found in the Southern USA and Northern Mexico. It can grow in almost any kind of soil with some water and lots of sun. The stems will only grow to six centimetres in diameter (not much of an caudex!) and six meters in height. The flowers are bright red, and the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.
