Fishhook Pincushion Cacti (Mammillaria grahamii) go unnoticed most of the time, as they rarely grow taller than about 6 inches and are often hidden under other plants. When they bloom after rains, though, they are spectacular. The photo shows the 'classic' circular blooming pattern. Like a little crown of whitish-pink to bright pink flowers.
