Opuntia

$0.46

Opuntia, a bushy, perennial cactus with flat, small, oval to round pads, is very attractive.

The pads start out as pairs of red, bunny-ear-like structures when they are young, and as they develop, they turn a soft, velvety green.

Despite having no spines, they are heavily covered in white areoles that are evenly spaced and each have white, yellow, or reddish-brown bristly spines.

In the spring or early summer, large, bowl-shaped flowers that are either completely yellow or have a red tint appear on the edges of the pads.
