    Description

Opuntia basiliaris - Beaver Tail Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 5 large seeds.

This is a low growing member of this group and originates from the southwestern USA.  It has large pads, that stand upright and the plant branches basally such that a single plant can consist of 100's of pads.  It grows to only 60 cm tall making it a very manageable plant when grown in pots and containers.  It flowers in the late spring and the flowers are generally a glowing pink colour, although rarely yellow or white flowers can be produced.

Easy from seed and almost hardy, in habitat it contends with several degrees of frost and can be covered with snow.  Grown elsewhere where the winters are wetter, it would need to have a sheletered location and a very free draining soil.  If it can be grown outside, then it rewards this with an even better show of flowers which are often followed by fruits (prickly pears).

Propagate further by the divsion of the pads or by sowing any seed produced.
