It has a globular body, as is typical in this genus, with a depressed and flat upper part, grayish-green in color. The ribs are narrow, between 8 and 14, although with age they increase to 23. The areoles appear in protuberances along the ribs, large and rounded with grayish wooliness. It has between 6 and 12 white or reddish radial spines 2 to 2.5 cm long, with transverse striae. The 4 central ones, much longer and more intense in color, are erect or curved outwards. Among these, it has a lower one that becomes more developed than the rest, flat and much more hooked at the tip, reaching 77 mm in width.
The marked striae on its spines correspond to its growth phases.

The flowers, about 3.5 cm, are whitish or red, or even mauve or purplish blue.

Part of its popularity is due to its early flowering in relation to the rest of the genus, which only does so when they are adults, on the other hand, ferocactus latispinus blooms with only 15 cm in diameter.

In 1896 Weber proposed the name Echinocactus latispinus v flavispinus for the varieties with thorn and yellow flower. Although currently it is considered a simple variety of the species.
