Prickly-Pear Cactus (Opuntia)

Captivating Cactus and Striking Succulents: 11 in a series - Opuntia Transplant In My Garden

A couple of years ago I was able to take several paddles from a neighbor’s prickly Pear cactus. All five of these petals have grown into healthy, new, large plants.

Now I am taking the time to transplant them into the garden from the pots where they had been growing. Two of them are in including this one with three yet to go. in this bed, I moved out three roses that were suffering from the increased shade of the mature trees and move them to the front garden.
