Lophophora williamsii ‘Durango’ | ‘Peyote’, ‘Peyōtl’ | 25 seeds

Another Arkham’s Botanical UK exclusive! An amazing locality variety of Lophophora williamsii (‘Peyote’), sustainably harvested in the Mexican state of Durango. Grab some of these seeds if you want to expand your garden with some quite excellent genetics…

Lophophora williamsii is a small dark-green and spineless cactus, native to Mexico and southwestern Texas and found primarily in the Chihuahuan desert and in the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas among scrub – especially where there is limestone. Growing to around fifteen centimetres high, williamsii is drought-tolerant and prefers full sun to partial shade.

The English name ‘Peyote’ derives from the identically-spelled Spanish name, which in turn comes from the Nahuatl name ‘Peyōtl’, said to be derived from a root meaning “glisten” or “glistening”. The species has enjoyed a long relationship with human and has a history of ritualistic and medicinal use by indigenous Americans, who are likely to have used the plant for ceremonial purposes for at least five and a half thousand years.

All the seed sold by Arkham’s Botanical was freshly and ethically sourced in 2018-2019
