Negative MotherNature4 On Apr 4, 2008, MotherNature4 from Bartow, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

Though this plant grows too large for my purposes and has large spines, it is suitable for growing in hanging baskets where it can't get away and can be pruned to a desireable size. It is a primitive member of the cactus family, having salmon colored leaves that are evergreen in the warmer range.
