What is Leuenbergeria quisqueyana

Leuenbergeria quisqueyana, commonly known as the Bayahibe rose (scientific name: Leuenbergeria quisqueyana) is a rare cactus with spines and leaves endemic to the Dominican Republic, and became the national flower of the Dominican Republic in 2011. Its native habitat is the village of Bayaibe on the southeastern coast of the island of Ispaniola in the Caribbean Sea of South America, where it is found only on the shoreline of coral limestone and sandy beach bushes. The habitat has been logged and is listed as endangered. The trunk is 2-4 m tall, 25 cm in diameter, and covered with numerous groups of spines that emerge from the spinous seat. The twigs also have numerous straw-colored thorns, as does the trunk. Gorgeous pink flowers, 5-7 cm in diameter, bloom from the tips of the branches in March and July. Growth is slow. The species minor name is from "Quisqueya" (an indigenous Haitian word for Dominica).
