Several different varieties of this plant with differences relating to the lateral spines. One on plant I saw the spines were enormous and woody with hooks on them. On several others, the leaf edges were ornamentall lined with red-brown coloration and similarly colored spines. The leaves of this plant are relatively wide and flat and it makes a perfect globe that never offsets- great landscape plant. Leaves are a dark green.
