This native of the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico forms large sage green pads with clusters of brown glochids and occasional long spines. Showy orange or yellow flowers in the spring are followed by rosy-red fruit. Plant in full sun to part shade, well-drained soils, and allow plenty of room for development. Birds feast on the fruit and nest among the pads.
