Description: acanthocalycium spiniflorum f. violaceum (lilac flower cactus), best known as acanthocalycium violaceum, is one of the forms of acanthocalycium spiniflorum which is a widespread and morphologically variable taxon. It is a spherical to elongated cactus about 10-15 cm wide over time, but will rarely compensate. It differs from the type of species for its beautiful pale-lilac flowers and ribbed body armed with dense yellow or honey-colored spines, but most botanist agrees on the fact that all the varieties described so far should all be included in the acanthocalycium violaceum. The flowers appear heaviest in spring and summer. There are also forms with white flowers, and the yellow spination can be sparse or more dense and long.
Voice: Solitary to clump, spherical to elongated, 20–60 cm long, 10–15 cm thick, light green to dull green.
Ribs: Tal, 15-20, acute, 1-1.5 cm high notched, on areoles.
Areoles: 1.5 to 2 cm apart, round, whitish when young, rather large.
Spines: 10-12 (-20) per areole, dense thin strong, needle-like, straight or curved, more or less scattered, yellowish to honey-colored (or light brown) up to about 3 cm long. Central spines 3 or 4, develop later, yellow tipped brown up to 4 cm long.
Roots: Stack.
Flowers: trumpet-shaped, erect, slightly variable from one plant to another, usually light liliac-violet, but sometimes almost white 4 cm to 7.5 cm long and long and c. 6 cm wide, and appear in a ring near the apex during late spring and summer. Ovary and tube with pointed spinescent scales and whitish hair or wool; the inner petals of a tender purple color, hairy on the throat.
Blooming season. Late spring to early summer. It begins flowering at about 8 cm in diameter.
