Opuntia basilaris miniature
This is a new product for us. The pads are only about 2 inches long but the bloom is the same electric pink as the larger clones. This beavertail has the advantage of a somewhat upright growth habit and is not as rot-prone as most of its cousins. This plant is very happy in a six inch pot and thus allows collectors to add a prickly pear without adding an additional room to the house. I think it would be lost for many years in a landscape due to the very small size but should be just the ticket for containers.
Size: 6 inch pot
