Echinocactus grusonii-Golden Barrel Cactus
Cactaceae Family

Native of Mexico it is a slow grower eventually can reach to 3-4' across but after many years.  Yellow flowers appear at the top in summer.  It is great in containers but best if some protection is provided from full hot reflected sun in the low desert.
