Echinopsis chamaecereus ‘Westfield Alba’, commonly known as the Peanut Cactus ‘Westfield Alba’, is a unique and captivating cultivar of the Peanut Cactus. It features slender, finger-like stems that form dense, low-growing clusters, resembling a cluster of peanuts. The stems are covered in soft, white spines, adding to its distinctive appearance. In late spring to early summer, ‘Westfield Alba’ produces stunning white flowers that create a beautiful contrast against the green stems. This easy-to-care-for cactus thrives in well-draining soil and bright, indirect light.
