Nice 'user-friendly' version of the normally very spiny plant. Some plants still have a spine or two, so careful when moving them/lifting them. Haven't seen a really large one of this form, but so far no reason to suspect that they will not get the size of the normal variety. One thing I have noticed is this form consistently blooms before the spiny form does, but about 2-4 weeks. No idea why that is, but could just be placement within my yard.
