    Description

Opuntia littoralis - Coastal Prickly Pear

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds of this prickly pear

Also known as the sprawling prickly pear due to its growth habit.  It is found naturally in the coastal areas of California, south to Baja California. It has pads that are around 22cm long with clumps of yellow spines and it grows to height of up to 4 metres with an indeterminant spread.  The flowers appear in late spring and are yellow or red and are followed by edible fruit.  In cultivation it should flower when still quite small (no more than 3 or 4 pads).

Young plants require a degree of shade and protection from the sun as they normally develop in the shade of another plant until they push through the cover or the shade plant dies (as in the case of a mature cactus).  This need should be observed even in the higher latitudes to protect seedlings from becoming scorched and stunted.

Easy to germinate and grow on, full instructions can be found by going to my 'ME' page and following the links there.
