Capitataus means head shaped, which is the shape of the glomerate inflorescence, which is densely upright, consisting of several flowered spikes 7-8cm long. This is the reason the Capitata variety is named this way. It is found in deserts, more commonly attached to rocks rather than tress. At an approximate altitude of 220 metres above sea level. It grows in temperatures between 21 degrees C – 34 degrees C. Capitata Peach, in its natural habitat, has a pale colour; in order to give more colour intensity, it is cultivated in colder climates. This change of temperature gives the plant its peach colour, which it develops in order to protect itself from the cold.
